The problem is that vegastrike, vegastrike-data, and vegastrike-music
are all built from separate source packages, and there are no
dependencies that would keep the latter two packages from getting into
sarge without vegastrike.

I'm filing this bug against vegastrike-data so that the -data and -music
packages can be removed from testing without sneaking back in before
vegastrike is ready.  This seems to be the right thing to do; hopefully
the maintainer will explain if there's some other reason to want these
packages in sarge.

For vegastrike itself, the relevant bug seems to be 207578; since
there's been a gcc-3.4 package in the archive for a while now, is it
time to try again to get vegastrike building on m68k?
