Because lilypond 2.8.7 build-depends on guile-1.8, and lilypond *was*
previously built on these architectures where guile-1.8 is unavailable.

That still doesn't make 396119 release-critical.  It does make it a bug that
has to be resolved for lilypond 2.8.7 to be released, AFAICS.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
