That's not supposed to work :P

Try "debian/rules `dpkg-architecture -l`"

Please explain why you think so.

You are dropping the context:

sub findarch {
   if (exists $ENV{DEB_HOST_ARCH}) {
   } else {
      $arch=`dpkg --print-architecture`;
      $? && &subprocerr("dpkg --print-architecture");
       chomp $arch;
    $substvar{'Arch'}= $arch;
It's only there because I was very careful about backward compatibility on
linux systems when changing the code. I do my best to get
--print-architecture dropped from dpkg alltogether, but it might take some
time to communicate this to the dpkg maintainer (hi Wichert :)

You can put it online and post a link here if you want.

Please note that the comment made on this list is correct: I think you can
have objc but not libgc (there is a special option for it).
