Need help fixing bug #269534, #269534


I have two serious bug reports against cursel:

#267900: cursel: ftbfs [sparc] syntax error "_Bool"
#269534: cursel_0.2.2-3.1(ia64/unstable): FTBFS: bad build-depends

However, the problem seems to be with another package, objc-poc:

#258993: /usr/bin/objc1 is incompatible with gcc-3.3 and other problems

To summarize, there is certain dependencies on gcc-2.95 in objc-poc,
which cannot be resolved. I could do the following that may work
around the problem:

1. Change build-depends as follows:
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 3.0), byacc, objc-poc, flex, libncurses5-dev, \
gcc-2.95 [!hppa !ia64], gcc-3.0 [hppa], gcc-2.96 [ia64]

2. Change debian/rules to force the c compiler as follows:
C      = gcc-2.95
ifeq ($(DEB_BUILD_ARCH),hppa)
  CC    = gcc-3.0
ifeq ($(DEB_BUILD_ARCH),ia64)
  CC    = gcc-2.96

But, it is insane since I will keep having bug reports. A better solution
seems to have objc-poc upgraded to 3.2.6. Should I even be
contemplating of MMUing it?

Thanks for any suggestions/comments.
Best Regards.
