I personally see two options to deal with this (as said before I do not
see any sense in simply skipping the test suite - why should we deliver
a package on an architecture where it can not even be tested?):

  1. Exclude mips explicitly in d/control
  2. Ask ftpmaster to remove the package for mips architecture

The latter would enable the package to migrate to testing and once there
might be more powerful autobuilders it will come back automatically.
Please let me know what you think.

Kind regards
