I was stuck in the middle and resumed 'manually' with debian/rules.

Oh - I have to purge the devscripts of my machine :-0.
~$ fgrep -- --print-arch /usr/lib/dpkg/controllib.pl
$? && &subprocerr("dpkg --print-architecture");

Should I put the binutils somewhere for observation? They obviously
work (at least for me), but I don't think my build can be included
into the dist since I'm not yet a developer...
But I have my key signed from a developer who made it recently
through the Q: Gerfried Fuchs (email@example.com), if that's of any
I'm gonna take the gcc beast later tonight. As it looked yesterday,
the diffs will be small.

Would be nice, tough... But I guess it's hard to write without
intimate knowledge of the HURD.
