I have a build failure on mpis (segfault during test suite):

relocate/bin/yorick -batch debian/check.i
 Begin Yorick parser test...
 Test catch function...
make: *** [check] Segmentation fault

I believe it may be related to the lack of an FPU on the buildd machine. In fact, I have been able to come up with a simple testcase that causes
yorick to fail with a segmentation fault, both on the version in sid
as well as the version currently in etch.

My simple test is to start yorick up interactively, and enter:

 5.0 / 0.0

at the prompt.  On a mips (or mipsel) box without an FPU,
this causes a segmentation fault.  With an FPU, it catches
a SIGFPE and allows me to enter debug mode.

I don't know the configuration of the mips buildd machines,
but I suspect the ones that yorick has been built on in the past
have had FPUs, and the one that it was just built on did not.

I have posted a message to the linux-mips mailing list
asking about this.  Hopefully, somebody there will
be able to provide some insight.

OK, thanks, that is very helpful. Please keep me posted if you ever get an answer to your post. In the meantime I will deactivate this test on mips since this failure is not a critical bug.

Best regards, Thibaut.
