Sarge release for amd64 - Please help to fix the remaining bugs

Debian sarge release for the amd64 architecture

At the amd porters irc meeting on 2005-04-23 07:00 UTC, the amd64 porting
team decided to release a version of sarge for amd64 which is based on the 
unpatched Debian sarge source packages. 

The amd64 porting team will provide security support for the sarge release
by autobuilding the security updates as soon as the fixed sources become

Proposed updates and updated versions for Debian sarge point releases 
will also be made available for amd64 by the amd64 porting team.

The package archive for the Debian amd64 sarge port will be hosted by
a Debian server which is located in Darmstadt, Germany. 
The complete debian-amd64 project will move from the current alioth host 
to that server.

Packages from sarge with build problems on amd64

There are still a few packages in sarge which fail to build from source 
on amd64. Those packages will not be part of the amd64 release of sarge.

The packages mentioned in the table below and all their dependencies 
will not be part of the amd64 sarge release unless the listed problems 
get fixed really soon and the fixed package versions make it into sarge.

The following architecture specific packages from Debian sarge/main 
currently (as of 2005-04-24) fail to build from source for amd64:
