Re: Any "efficient" way to specify target arches?

No, it's not.

But even if it were, how would an "efficient" way of specifying the
Linux arches or the BSD arches or anything tied to a kernel that Debian
may support?

The package is avr-evtd.

It is tied to some ioctls that are only available on Linux (and the
compatibility layer of FreeBSD doesn't "cover" them).  Actually, it is
very hardware-dependent (for certain embedded devices).

That's the situation about FreeBSD. I'm not even sure about the Hurd.
So, that's the reason why I'm asking for a way of uploading the package
and not having it bomb when given to the buildd's, as it is Not-For-Us.
