I'm only aware of issues on MIPS* for which a patch is present:


The FTBFS on armel is caused by a test failure:

20/90 Test #19: base-base_dictionary/remove
.............................................***Failed    0.08 sec
Running 1 test case...
unknown location(0): fatal error: in "base_dictionary/remove": memory
access violation at address: 0x000026f8: no mapping at fault address
/<<PKGBUILDDIR>>/test/base-dictionary.cpp(128): last checkpoint

*** 1 failure is detected in the test module "Master Test Suite"

On armhf all the tests fail due to memory access violations.

I don't know if people actually use icinga2 on those architectures, but
I consider it reasonable to ignore test failures on those architectures,
at least until a users of icinga2 on those architectures actually
complains about icinga2 not working correctly.

For those kind of issues I usually use something like:

 DEB_BUILD_ARCH ?= $(shell dpkg-architecture -qDEB_BUILD_ARCH)


 ifneq (,$(filter $(DEB_BUILD_ARCH),armel armhf))
         dh_auto_test || echo "Ignoring test failures"

Kind Regards,
