Source: haskell-path-pieces
Version: 0.2.0-1
Severity: important
Justification: Fails to build from source but built in the past.

haskell-path-pieces FTBFS on the Debian-Ports arches (alpha, hppa and
ppc64) with:

Running debian/hlibrary.setup configure --ghc -v2 --package-db=/var/lib/ghc/package.conf.d --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib/haskell-packages/ghc/lib --builddir=dist-ghc --ghc-option=-optl-Wl\,-z\,relro --haddockdir=/usr/lib/ghc-doc/haddock/path-pieces-0.2.0/ --datasubdir=path-pieces --htmldir=/usr/share/doc/libghc-path-pieces-doc/html/ --enable-library-profiling --enable-tests
Configuring path-pieces-0.2.0...
hlibrary.setup: At least the following dependencies are missing:
HUnit -any, QuickCheck -any, hspec >=1.3
make: *** [configure-ghc-stamp] Error 1

I see build-depends restricted to the official linux arches for
libghc-hspec-dev and libghc-quickcheck2-dev.  Could we get the
Debian-Ports arches that have ghc built (alpha, hppa and ppc64)
added to those build-depends please.
