If I were you I'd maybe build it on some of these architectures if I
felt motivated to do so, and then file a bug on ftp.debian.org to get
the old builds removed for the other architectures that are no longer
autobuilding non-free software. If they don't want to autobuild it, why
waste their CPU time and your time trying to do it manually. Ftp master
is generally responsive to such requests.
