Hi Neil,

Thanks a lot for the help.

I have disabled the tests on arm m68k s390 because they are not so fast,
and on mips mipsel hppa because the buildds for these arches are not
keeping up. Anyway, I do not expect any user on these architectures. I am
all open to enable the tests if one can prove me wrong with a message
from a real user (the package name is primer3).

Have a nice day,
