> What shall we do about this? I think it's nice to support as many architectures as possible, and that is strongly encouraged by Debian - but upstream don't provide the same level of support. I'll suggest two options:
Or we could just fail at build time on tier-1 and continue if the
testsuite fails on the other archs.
To be honest, this is what I am doing with LLVM & Clang...
