Bug#634714: qpxtool: debian/control uses hardcoded list of kFreeBSD architectures

Package: qpxtool
Severity: wishlist
User: debian-devel@lists.debian.org
Usertags: kfreebsd-any

The debian/control file in qpxtool uses a hardcoded list of kfreebsd-*
architectures (e.g "kfreebsd-i386 kfreebsd-amd64") to specify a package
relationship (most likely Build-Depends) that isn't specific to i386
or amd64 hardware.  I.e. something like:

  Build-Depends: libfoo-dev [kfreebsd-i386 kfreebsd-amd64]

Since this relationship would apply all the same for kfreebsd-* architectures
other than kfreebsd-i386 or kfreebsd-amd64 (like the upcoming kfreebsd-mipsel
port), please consider using dpkg wildcards instead.  For example:

  Build-Depends: libfoo-dev [kfreebsd-any]
