Build problems on sarti (was: Bug#3340279: failed install prevents building of another package that has tetex-bin as build-depends)

Dear Debian admins, 

we need your help with that bug (I've already sent you a message
earlier, suspecting hardware problems).

Note that the user mixed things up; it's #340279.

This shows that the same formats fail to build that failed with the
original bugreport.  So maybe it is in fact not so indeterministic as I
first thought, and not a hardware failure but a real bug.  However:

we need these temporary files.  Without that there is hardly a chance to
debug this.  I just tried that the formats are built fine in paer's sid
chroot, so it doesn't seem to be simple "doesn't work on hppa" thing
(although I obviously couldn't do it as root, but only in my homedir).
