But then it still breaks for the woody -> sarge update all the users
will have to do.
I think resolving the cyclic depend is a far better solution.

http://www.buildd.net/ and then look for the email of the person that
failed the build last time. He is the best to ask in case something

the m68k-build list is on those pages too. Hopefully the remaining
archs send in the missing infos too.
