Packages must autobuild without failure on all architectures on
which they are supported. Packages must be supported on as many
architectures as is reasonably possible. Packages are assumed to
be supported on all architectures for which they have previously
built successfully. Prior builds for unsupported architectures
must be removed from the archive (contact -release or ftpmaster
if this is the case).
atlas has significant reverse-dependencies, removing it from alpha is not
acceptable to me with my alpha hat on.
Since we don't appear to have an alpha porter machine on-line now (meh), I
can take a look at reproducing this and get some more info about where the
segfault lies, but not today because my alpha seems to be off-line back home
and I have to wait for Patty to reboot it.

Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
