Version: 0.0~git20180126.e307c2f-1
Severity: grave

Justification: renders package unusable

fakemachine currently assumes that the linker is
/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2, the standard C library is
/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6, and qemu-system-x86_64 is an
appropriate way to run a virtual machine. None of these are true on
non-amd64 architectures.

Ideally fakemachine should be taught to cope with other architectures
(I've opened a wishlist bug and marked it as forwarded to

Until that happens, it should only be built on architectures where it
can work (see attached). This will require uploading a version marked
to be built on amd64 only, then asking the ftp team to remove the old
binaries on other architectures.
