Indeed. It's also their own fault, as there are measures in place for
avoiding this kind of thing :-)

If there's no point in trying to build OpenAFS on those architectures,
it should be added to packages-arch-specific, so that no attempts are
made anymore.

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the
