The build completed, so I'll sign and upload the binaries when I get
home. (I don't have access to my key at present.) In the meantime,
I've posted the log at
http://people.debian.org/~ucko/emboss_4.1.0-1_amd64.build and would
like to take the opportunity to point out some issues I observed with
- Although the command I used (debuild -B) was supposed to build only
the architecture-dependent (arch-amd64) packages, it built
architecture-independent (arch-all) packages as well; please take
care to build the latter from a separate binary-indep target in
debian/rules rather than building everything from binary-arch.
- Three executables in emboss (and their manpages, once they
materialize) implicitly conflict with other packages in the
archive, in violation of Policy 6.6(4):
$ for x in usr/bin/*; do apt-file search -F $x; done
- The shared libraries in emboss-lib contain a number of unresolved
references to symbols from other libraries, in violation of Policy
10.2; please take care to link them against the libraries they
- The binaries contain extraneous rpath entries for /usr/lib,
presumably due to using a buggy version of libtool.
Could you please address these issues prior to letting emboss into
