after an upgrade, I found myself out of git. An attempt to reinstall shows:

E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

It's the usual problem in Debian Ports [1] due to some Qt5 packages FTBFS on sparc64.

In particular, it's kconfig that blocks subversion which blocks git.

You can fetch git-man from snapshot.debian.org in the meantime.

FWIW, the various build issues on sparc64 have been fixed in Qt6, so all these
Qt issues will go away once everyone has migrated to Qt6.
