If the package was supposed to build for aalib, why did the build not fail
as soon as it discovered an aalib/hppa problem?  The failure of the source
package to bail out, instead of building an empty package, is a sourceful
bug; could you please upload a sourceful fix for this instead?

The bug should really be 'grave' as well, since an empty libggi-target-aa
package is certainly unusable.
