Justification: FTBFS on amd64


During a rebuild of all packages in sid, your package failed to build on

This rebuild was done by building only architecture:any binary packages
(binary-arch target of debian/rules), and using a recent dpkg that uses the
build-arch target if available.
Also, only the Build-Depends were installed, not the Build-Depends-Indep.

Relevant part:
>  debian/rules build-arch
> dh build-arch
>    dh_testdir -a
>    dh_auto_configure -a
>    dh_auto_build -a

About the archive rebuild: The rebuild was done on about 50 AMD64 nodes
of the Grid'5000 platform, using a clean chroot.  Internet was not
accessible from the build systems.
