Not problematic TTBOMK, it's built cleanly everywhere and I've bumped the

The package fails to build with a screwy, arch-specific build failure on
arm.  (As in, the failing code is arm specific.)  Needs investigation.

excessively large log files that get stuck in mail systems, so I've pinged
the buildd maintainer about this one (in addition to forcing the package in
