  No, it's not sparc-specific. What I meant is that, from a release
  management point of view, it is preventing xorg-x11 from being a
  candidate for testing, since (for different reasons over time, one of
  them being the mentioned #318979) there has not been a successful
  build of the package in SPARC yet. And this is blocking other packages
  from doing their C++ ABI transition as well.

  So, the bug is serious because it breaks compilation of other
  packages, and the release team would wish (I believe) a quick solution
  for the reason explained in the previous paragraph.

  Again, sorry if my words were not clear enough. I was not talking
  about an already existing FTBFS on sparc, but about a _future_ one,
  when xorg-x11 would be retried in that arch with l-k-h 2.6.13+0rc3-1
  (as you say, last time it was tried with still But Eugene
  Konev has stated that such retry _would_ fail, and I've asked the
  X.org packagers for confirmation.

  xorg-x11 does not build-depend on l-k-h, though the packagers may wish
  to update their build-conflicts.
