[Pkg-acpi-devel] Bug#610552: acpi should be enabled for all architectures

Package: acpi
Version: 1.1-2.1
Severity: important
Justification: fails to build from source

Is there a particular reason why the acpi command line tool is disabled
all architectures but i386, amd64 and ia64? It doesn't really rely on
presence of ACPI in the BIOS to report the battery status.

In fact, I just compiled it on a Lemote Yeeloong (mipsel using pmon
as bootloader firmware) and it works perfectly.

Debian Release: 5.0.1
Architecture: mipsel (mips64)
