Bug#236534: sparc64 binaries in the sparc port

package: lintian


  I think lintian should check whether a packaqge has any sparc64 binaries
in a sparc package.  Lintian probably only needs to give a warning if a
64-bit binary is found.

 The relevant things to check for is probably
64-bit MSB .*, SPARC V9
from the output of file.

 Here is the actual output from file on a binary and on a library:

jim@squirrel:~/test $ file a.out
a.out: ELF 64-bit MSB executable, SPARC V9, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.18, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped
jim@squirrel:~/test $ file /lib64/libc
libc-2.3.2.so      libcrypt-2.3.2.so  libcrypt.so.1      libc.so.6
jim@squirrel:~/test $ file /lib64/libc-2.3.2.so
/lib64/libc-2.3.2.so: ELF 64-bit MSB shared object, SPARC V9, version 1 (SYSV), stripped
