Some package FTBFS on ia64 with the following error:
Unpacking octave3.0 (from .../octave3.0_1%3a3.0.5-6_ia64.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /x/org/chroots/buildd/sid/var/cache/apt/archives/octave3.0_1%3a3.0.5-6_ia64.deb (--unpack):
unable to make backup link of `./usr/bin/octave-3.0.5' before installing new version: Operation not permitted
This only seems to occur with caballero. The autobuilds on mundy seem to
have succeeded, but I did not verify it carefully. The affected packages
are: octave-octcdf, octave-octgpr, octave-odepkg, octave-optim, octave-parallel,
octave-plot, octave-signal, and octave-specfun
Any idea on how to fix this problem?
