Re: Bug#745116: src:gcc-4.8: DEB_CROSS_NO_BIARCH=yes ignored for DEB_TARGET_ARCH=hppa

I am closing this bug now, because I believe that there is no bug at

When building binutils on hppa natively, one obtains binutils and
binutils-hppa64 packages, which is fine. I therefore assumed that cross
building binutils for a hppa target should also result in hppa64
binutils.  This is neither the case nor necessary. One can cross build
binutils twice setting TARGET=hppa-linux-gnu and TARGET=hppa64-linux-gnu
respectively. This might be considered inconsistent, but it does not
warrant keeping this bug open any longer.
