Getting octaviz into testing


the latest version of octaviz can't enter testing because it ftbfs on
arm, ia64 and sparc. 

The failure is due to a chroot corruption on the buildds, probably
caused by an earlier upload of a related package last year, see [1].
Summary: There's a broken alternatives symlink set in the chroot,
breaking octaviz's configure script.

Mail was sent to the buildd-maintainers list in January (see Wouter's
answer in [1]). Personal mail to the above buildds' admins[3] was sent
on June 01; starting from June 03, the build was interrupted and a
message displayed in the build log, see eg [2].

Now, I'm not sure how to proceed. Hinting the package into testing is
useless, as this won't fix the buildd chroots.
