Hi Steffen,

my iMac G5 broke a couple of monthes ago after five years of intensive use, so
I can not do some local tests on PowerPC anymore. But as Debian developers, we
all have a remote PowerPC machine:

I logged in pescetti.debian.org, and tried to build the latest hmmer package
with your patch in the Sid dchroot. Unfortunately, it fails with the same
error. We probably should better ask for help on the powerpc mailing list.

Bonne journée ;)
