Re: gcc-3.4: Strange Build-Depends "gnu" instead of "hurd-i386"

Hi Michael!

I'm adding CC to debian-hurd and glibc-bsd-devel. Btw, next time please use
X-Debbugs-CC instead of CC.

These were supposed to be used as '| gnu' so that the type-handling virtual
packages disabled the dependency. However, it seems that operation method
caused trouble because of buggy buildds, utils, etc. So I think Matthias
reverted it.

As of 0.2.1, I added a new operation method in type-handling to avoid this
problem. Look at bug #262350 for an example. I intend to commit a proper fix
using this once my 'gcccvs' GID is synced into alioth.

It is, and also for locales.

I think this is just a dpkg bug. Sometimes it gets confused and ignores the
Build-Dependencies completely.
