Package: gtk-doc-tools
Version: 1.32-4
Severity: important


the mipsel build of webkit2gtk is failing because of gtkdoc-scangobj:

| Exception: gtkdoc-scangobj produced a non-zero return code 250
| Command:
|   gtkdoc-scangobj --module=webkit2gtk-4.0

This is only happening on the mipsel builds, and I cannot reproduce
the problem in eller.debian.org. Adrian Bunk says it fails on the
Loongson buildds but succeeds on the others.

I have a FTBFS on webkit2gtk because of this (#962616).
