Normaly you have 3 choices:

1. log into the Debian systems for each arch and check
2. upload and reupload if it still fails
   Only if the problem should be gone now, e.g. the gcc ICE bug got
   closed. You should probably 'Build-Depends: g++-3.4 (>=
   fixed-version) [arch]' to force a g++ update before build.
3. ask the porters

As non DD (1) becomes difficult and (2) can be tiresome to your
sponsor and yourself. (3) on the other hand is also work.


PS: I would upload the package to be build with the normal g++-3.4 and
leave it failed on some archs unless it is something critical.
