Bug#675701: RFS: ptop

Hi Bas,

I suggested earlier to have another look at the list of architectures for these
reasons :

- m68k is twice on the list,
- hppa is not on the list but removing hppa is not mentioned in debian/changelog,
- powerpcspe is on the list but the build fails for the same reason as hppa.

Architecture: amd64 armel armhf i386 ia64 mips mipsel powerpc s390 s390x sparc sparc64 sh4 ppc64 powerpcspe m68k m68k armhf alpha hurd-i386

There are some typing mistakes in debian/changelog.

 | ptop (3.6.2-8) unstable; urgency=low
 |   * Applyed path for hurd architechtur and activate in control file (closes: #675757)

 | ptop (3.6.2-7) unstable; urgency=low
 |   * Remove architechtures hurd-i386, kfreebsd-amd64 and kfreebsd-i386
 |     because they alway fail
 |   * Changed Standards-Version to 3.9.3

It would be nice to have 3.6.2-7 and 3.6.2-8 combined into only 3.6.2-7, but
it's not really an error.

It is good to see that hurd-i386 is back.  I guess you don't have a solution
for the other removed architectures yet.

I see that debian/patches/ptop_hurd contains machine/m_gnu.c and that file
contains this:

 * AUTHOR: Richard Henderson <rth@tamu.edu>
 * Order support added by Alexey Klimkin <kad@klon.tme.mcst.ru>
 * Ported to 2.4 by William LeFebvre

But I don't find any Henderson in debian/copyright.  I also don't see any
license for machine/m_gnu.c.  Maybe Barry deFreese knows more, since he is
mentioned in the patch as the author of the patch.
