The main problem is that on the mips and mipsel architectures the
packages compile but their unit tests fail - timeout on mips, and
segfault on mipsel. The previous packaged version still didn't come with
unit tests. I informed the upstream author, but they probably more
concentrate on common platforms.

I think, for practical reasons, one would not use sextractor on a MIPS
machine yet, because it needs some processing power, so removing these
architectures until a fix is available would be a better alternative
thant using of a 6-year-old, buggy version (which never passed this kind
of unit-test).

How should I proceed here?
