I've seen various build failures and reverted to a pre-symbol dpkg-dev
for the buildd for now.
We need to urgently look into these - maybe those are just bugs showing
up because we're the first architecture to build those packages with the
If somebody encounters such a bug, it would be valuable to try a clean
GNU/Linux build first and see whether that fails as well, and then file
a regular bug without mentioning Debian GNU/Hurd.
The rest needs to be solved (I remember Raphael Hertzog mentioned that
