For armhf this would not help since there are some preconditions not met
(the atlas package is missing). For mips, however: yes, this is a
package that does *heavy* computation. Running it on a non-FPU coimputer
will take long times.
When I could confirm that the bug isn't latent in other architectures, I
could just switch off the testing in mips and mipsel.
