Help needed with failed build (#220928)


the package john, currently maintained by Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña
and myself, is failing to build on sparc. This was reported as bug
#220928. Paul Slootman then suggested that the benchmark programs fails
"when setting the SIGALRM signal handler at line 100 of bench.c" He
suggested running some malloc debugger, like electric fence. But neither
does Javier, nor do I have enough time for this task. So I'ld like to
ask you to help debugging this problem and fixing the build, so that it
works again. Otherwise we would have to drop sparc from the list of
supported architectures. So if anybody wants to help, please contact me
in private or send me a copy, as I'm not subscribed to debian-sparc.
