Package: allegro4.2
Severity: wishlist
User: debian-devel@lists.debian.org
Usertags: linux-any

The debian/control file in allegro4.2 uses a negated list of architectures
to specify a package relationship (most likely Build-Depends) on a
Linux-specific package.  I.e. something like:

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

This is problematic because it will fail for any future kfreebsd-* or hurd-*
architecture (like the upcoming kfreebsd-mipsel port).  The correct way
would be to use dpkg architecture wildcards, e.g.:

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

Please consider making this adjustment to make life easier for future
porting efforts.

Thanks!
