Hi,

I don't have a way to debug this, as I don't have machines with those
architectures.  When I released the package, I saw the problem and
requested that it be marked as "not for" those three architectures.
However, that didn't happen.

In the meantime, no one has ported the package.

The problem is occurring during the bootstrap of the gsc compiler, and
must be debugged on the failing architectures.

I will be building a new package shortly.  Perhaps upstream has done
something to alleviate the problem.  Otherwise, I'll have to delete
those architectures from the package to close this bug.  Unless you 
can help me debug it, of course :-)

Hmm, why? The binaries of the affected architectures (arm*, ia64) were 
removed from unstable years ago[0], so I think severity:important was 
more appropriate.

Indeed.  No release >= oldstable contains arm, armel or ia64 binaries
for gambc, so this isn't a regression and as such not RC; re-setting the
severity appropriately.
