Goswin is just compiling the m68k-binaries, so they'll be fixed. I'll
do something on the i386 this evening. It'd be good if someone with
more experience than I could compile on the other archs.

Marc 'HE' Brockschmidt created this script, and Jeroen van Wolffelaar
added it to lintian now; this check will be included in lintian after

local mirror was needed for that).
