[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: at
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch
Usertags: crossbuilt

In line with the other cross-building support bugs:

This patch is necessary to allow at to cross-build in Debian.

The change is based on recommendations in autotools-dev, so that --build
is always passed and --host is conditional. In addition, $(MAKE) is
passed the identity of the cross compiler, when used.
