Bug#599625: unblock: tcc/0.9.25-5

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: freeze-exception

Please unblock package tcc

tcc in squeeze is unable to link a program into an executable on amd64
when it uses string functions (strlen and co). As almost all C program
use string functions, I consider this bug serious. The version in
unstable contains a fix and it consists of just a few lines. The fix
was introduced in tcc 0.9.25-4 which stayed in unstable for almost 2
months without bringing any new bug. Version 0.9.25-5 is there only for
a few days but the only change is to drop armel architecture as tcc
doesn't build on armel because of a failure in the test suite.

Changes between version 0.9.25-3 are:

tcc (0.9.25-5) unstable; urgency=low

  * Drop support for armel arch.
  => tcc has never built on armel

tcc (0.9.25-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix bashims in configure and gcctestsuite.sh.
  => This is a release goal.

  * Add support for indirect functions as externals.
  => This is the few line fix.

  * Bump Standard-Version from 3.8.4 to 3.9.1 (no changes needed).
  * debian/control:
    - Improve package description for libtcc-dev.
  => If this last change causes a problem with regards to the
  translations I can make a new upload without the improved description

Best regards and good luck for the squeeze release.
