Haven't tried to build it yet, but I see the following rather serious
problem: pcc depends on unavailable packages on amd64 and i386,
apparently a remnant from the previous version which used to be in
experimental. This makes me wonder how you have tested your package,
when it is not installable. In particular, has bug #638309 been fixed?
The debian/links file should probably be removed, it only works on amd64
and seems to be redundant with the override_dh_link rule in debian/rules.

Information about pcc, however, can be found at
http://pcc.ludd.ltu.se/. ;-) Sadly they don't do https. :-(

Which is not completely true, since version 1.1.0~DEVEL+20110422-1 used
to be in experimental: https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/pcc. Whether it's
worth to keep the old changelog entry for that version is debatable.
