Well, the package in question needs proprietary data to work. I'd have
to upload this (large) data to a Debian machine -- a thing I'd rather

Furthermore, some weeks ago, I asked here for a machine for developers
with gcc 3.0 on it, and got no satisfactory answers.

Alpha is one problem child. AFAIK only mips* use 3.0 by default,

I bit the bullet and made the change for all archs. I can always
downgrade single archs when bug reports accumulate. In that case, I'll
also have at least one tester for that arch at hand.
