Great, thanks! I'll review the result when I get a chance.

Don't worry, it definitely does -- I anticipate it will sooner or later
be common, if not typical, to need only libncbi-vdb.

Last I checked, the CMake setup had some architecture-specific logic
that would call for not only keeping but tightening the restriction, by
dropping i386. We could perhaps attempt to reinstate i386 support, but
I'm not sure it's worth the effort nowadays.

I've found sra-toolkit's to be a fairly effective stand-in, but a
dedicated autopkgtest certainly wouldn't hurt.
