Buildds are not guaranteed to have an associated tty, so this test would
fail.  (I think policy might require the availability of a tty for
maintainer scripts, but it's definitely not required during package

Try running your build under prctl --unaligned=signal to reproduce.  The
Debian buildds run with non-default unaligned trap handling in order to
catch programming errors that *can* be fixed up in the kernel, but only at a
high cost.

Have you reproduced this failure outside the buildds, or do you need someone
to give it a try?

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
