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
      $arch=`dpkg --print-architecture`;
      $? && &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 (alfie@debian.org), if that's of any

I'm gonna take the gcc beast later tonight. As it looked yesterday,
the diffs will be small.

Ah, Thanks.

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