Bug#28177: dpkg --print-architecture requires gcc

	Please file a bug against emacs. It should be using dpkg
 --print-installation-architecture which does not require gCC

	It already does.

  dpkg --print-architecture               print target architecture (uses GCC)
  dpkg --print-gnu-build-architecture     print GNU version of target arch
  dpkg --print-installation-architecture  print host architecture (for inst'n)

	This report should be reassigned to emacs20.

 It's amazing how much "mature wisdom" resembles being too tired.
