| Strange.  The buildd failure had nothing to do with these messages, though.

I read it and of course buildd did fail  because of this : the orig.tar.gz 
does not contain those PAxHeaders.8890 however it appears that it is present 
on all platforms (except m68k which runs fine) and when buildd tries to build 
the package, it fails because the debian/rules does know where the code is 
since there is this PaxHeaders.8890 in the way everywhere.

Again on my PC the tarball is fine and on m68k everything is fine !
where do these PaxHeaders.8890 come from ?

One possible test

apt-get source -b -y freefem3d 

it runs perfectly on my pc from beginning to finish and absolutely no 
PaxHEADERS.8890 !!!

so my belief is that something is weird/broken  somewhere on buildd or 
elsewhere (and not in my package)

thanks for your answer
