I recently uploaded a new version of open-iscsi to sid. It failed to build

Funny thing though: the binary that dh_strip tries to process shouldn't have
changed between -1 and -2, and the former built without problems. (And the
binary builds, it's dh_strip that fails. Also, build on powerpc works, plus
open-iscsi doesn't use the FPU heavily.)

The error message
Not enough room for program headers, try linking with -N
seems especially weird, as dh_strip calls objcopy, not ld. (And I could only
find information about that message in the context of ld from over a decade

Could you please share any information you have on this error ?

I see you had it at some point:


There is not much I can share other than what's reported in the protobuf transition bugreport. The issue seems reasonably common. It also affected some of my packages:

 * libgeotiff-dfsg (1.4.1-4)


 * libkml (1.3.0-3)


 * python-pyproj (


 * spatialite (4.3.0a-5)


Since powerpcspe is not a release architecture I'm not too worried about these build failures, and assume the porters will eventually fix the underlying issue.

Kind Regards,
