%superiotool: !hppa !ia64 !m68k !mips !mipsel !powerpc !sh4 !sparc #
i.e. the package isn't intended to build on ia64. The out-of-date ia64
binaries need removing from unstable, otherwise the package won't be
able to migrate even if it is unblocked.
w-b should probably also be updated to forget that superiotool ever had
binaries on ia64 but that's orthogonal to getting unstable tidied up.
