I'm not really sure how to read the britney output.  I think that this is
the relevant failure:

    now: 157+0: a-13:a-14:h-13:i-18:i-14:m-17:m-16:m-13:p-14:s-15:s-10
    * alpha: blacs-mpich-dev, blacs-mpich-test, blacs1-mpich, libhdf5-mpich-1.6.2-0, libhdf5-mpich-dev, mpb-mpi, netpipe-mpich, scalapack-mpich-dev, scalapack-mpich-test, scalapack1-mpich


but that would seem to imply that it's still exploding on all the
blacs-mpi stuff, which is part of the hint?  Or maybe it wasn't part of
the hint at the last britney run and you just added that?

Anyway, the whole thing won't go without new versions of:

Source: netpipe
Source: xmpi
Source: clustalw-mpi (non-free)

at least, even with more hint refinement.  Maybe we're getting towards
time for NMUs of those remaining packages?

Looking through these:

pytables has failed on Alpha.  The error message is:

    /usr/bin/python2.3 setup.py build
    Can't find a local numarray Python installation.
    Please, read carefully the README and remember
    that PyTables needs the numarray package to
    compile and run.

but python2.3-numarray was installed.  I'm mystified on this one.  I'll
submit a bug against pytables in the hope that the maintainer can take a
look at it; it may need to get reassigned to python-numarray.

rmpi is in dep-wait on arm waiting for libf2c2 (which is building), and in
dep-wait on hppa waiting for r-base.  r-base failed on hppa with an odd

    running code in 'utils-Ex.R' ...make[1]: *** [check] Terminated
    make[2]: *** [test-all-basics] Terminated
    make[3]: *** [test-Examples] Terminated
    semop(2): encountered an error: Invalid argument
    make: *** [check-stamp] Terminated
    make[4]: *** [test-Examples-Base] Error 1
    Build killed with signal 15 after 150 minutes of inactivity

Not really sure what to do with that problem; it smells a little like a
buildd issue rather than a problem with the package?

scalapack failed on powerpc with:

    /usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-linux-gnu/4.0.2/../../../../lib/libf2c.a(lread.o)(.got2+0xbc): unresolvable R_PPC_ADDR32 relocation against symbol `f__units'
    /usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Nonrepresentable section on output

Does this ring a bell with anyone?  That looks like a gcc issue, not a
problem with the package.  It's also in dep-wait on arm waiting for

octave-gpc needs a requeue (and I think that's all) on alpha and mips, as
it couldn't find libgpcl-dev and that package now appears to be available.
I'm not sure what's going on with it on ia64; it installs libgpcl-dev and
then can't find the header file from that package.  Maybe (he says
hopefully) a rebuild will help there too?  Should I mail the arch
addresses @buildd.debian.org about those two requeues?

semidef-oct is now fine, as is parmetis.

For the removal of plplot9-driver-gnome, should I submit a bug against
ftp.debian.org, or leave that for the package maintainer to do?

Very good idea.
