dpkg-dev (>= is reportedly build-essential today, and
dpkg-architecture was introduced before that. No problem here.

Ok, I updated my patch and sent it to the Debian maintainer.

This should go directly upstream, I think.

I've found it in the DPM now ... it's always good to have a holy
manual to hit the infidels with. Still, I wonder why
--print-architecture doesn't spew big, ugly warnings by now.

Oh, that's only a year old. I was more hoping for a 1.7 that had all the
hurd fixes included.

BTW, ssh wants PAM too (but works without), so I tried to compile
that. Halfway through I became doubtful whether a straight port of
linux-pam makes sense. Is it compatible with the Hurd's way of doing
things? I'm not sure, so I stopped working on that.
