Can the setting changed from within the program or from a config file?
If not, does it make sense to provide both alternatives? If yes, just
provide two menu entries.

This sounds like an internal compiler error. The build log isn't that
old yet, I'd wait for the buildd maintainer to review it, he will
probably re-schedule gnushogi for rebuild. Otherwise, the package will
get an FTBFS bug filed.

Yes, it means that the package won't go into testing at all. No, there
is no way to circumvent that except for getting it to build on arm.
Either wait (preferably), or find someone that builds it on arm for
