The .diff.gz and .dsc, signed, are in that directory.  I'm building
i686; I'll do PowerPC later tonight.  Probably S/390 and sparc also, on
Debian equipment.

I believe that Jeff is going to do Alpha and ia64, and James Troup
offered to do m68k.  That'll give us enough to make a confident upload,
I think.  Mips, mipsel, arm, and hppa are all expected to work at this
