package: libavg
version: 1.7.1-1
severity: important
tags: patch

Afaict prior to it's removal and reintroduction libavg was available on most architectures. The changelog entries gave no inidication of this support being dropped yet the package was marked as only being suitable for i386 and amd64. I've been running a derivative distribution and one of my users asked for this package so I took a look.

It seemed the only thing stopping it building on other architectures was a tiny peice of inline assembler that appeared to be designed to cause a break when running in a debugger. I added a fallback for this of deliberately segfaulting (which should cause a break in most debuggers).
