When skimming through that the bug I thought it was fixed in
upstream 10.0.27, and no comment in the bug indicated otherwise.
As (pretty passive) reader of debian-powerpc, I am also puzzled by the
fact that I cannot recall #832931 ever being mentioned there.
An email to the bug and the mailing list of the port stating that there
is a problem, and what is known about it, can be really helpful for
getting such a bug resolved.

I thought the information in the version tracking was wrong
when buildd.d.o showed green.

of the darkness. There had been need of rain for many days.
