Package fp-compiler fails to install on powerpc with libc6 2.23
(2.23-0experimental2 from
experimental).  Previously reported in Ubuntu [1], confirmed on

$ schroot -b -c experimental -n $mysid

$ dd-schroot-cmd -c $mysid apt-get update

$ dd-schroot-cmd -c $mysid apt-get install libc6=2.23-0experimental2
libc-bin=2.23-0experimental2 libc6-dev=2.23-0experimental2

$ dd-schroot-cmd -c $mysid apt-get install fpc

This will cause all packages build-depending on fpc; e.g. hedgewars,
lazarus, libqt4pas, and fpc itself, to FTBFS.
