sbuild doesn't update packages if it's not asked to. If you know
beforehand that a package *will* fail to build with a certain compiler,
you should update your build-depends and/or build-conflicts likewise, so
that there won't be a failed build in the first place.

sbuild (the building component of buildd) isn't pbuilder; sbuild tries
to build as many packages in as little time as possible. Therefore,
installed packages aren't looked at (so that time isn't wasted on them)
except to check that they satisfy versioned build-depends and/or

Actually, Ingo Juergensmann is just the local admin of arrakis. He
doesn't help because he's not a DD, that's all.

This is my fault; I thought it had built on quickstep, but I seem to
have messed up things. For that reason, it's not in dep-ret or
needs-build ATM (where it should've been). I sent Goswin (see below) a
mail, clearing that up.


Note that most kde packages are still in the queue for m68k; we've got
quite a backlog currently[1]. That said, Goswin von Brederlow is
building them, ignoring their position in the queue, thereby
special-casing KDE so that it gets built sooner.

[1] due to the fact that we don't have enough autobuilders ATM. There
are more being set up though, so it's being handled.
