[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: netsurf
Version: 2.1-2
Severity: important
Tags: patch
Usertags: kfreebsd


your package FTBFS on GNU/kFreeBSD due to buildsys-related issues
(trying to use foo-$platform-bar doesn't work well when $platform
contains a / :)). To fix it, I made GNU/kFreeBSD look like it's actually
Linux, and this went fine.

Small tweaks are needed in debian/rules too given there's no linuxfb to
copy files from. You may need to adjust the Architecture line of some
packages because I don't think it'd be nice to have empty packages on
non-Linux ports when it comes to packages specifically for the Linux
FrameBuffer. I didn't dig into that, though, the attached patch only
makes it possible to run “debuild” in the source tree.

Thanks for considering.
