We pull the source packages and arch all packages from Debian stretch 
(and occasionally I manually pull something from sid before Debian 
jessie has it, usually because of a build-depency issue*) into the 
stretch-staging suite in our repository. We then use 
wanna-build/buildd/sbuild to do the actual building. Once all the 
binaries are in sync and some depency checks pass the package will move 
to our main stretch suite.

A full log log of the build is at 

The buildd hardware for this autobuild was a wandboard quad. build 
chroots are using btrfs snapshots. The kernel is a custom build based on 
Debian 3.19.1-1~exp1 with a slight config tweak to reenable a udev 
related feature.

Searching the log for "bus error" didn't seem to turn anything up.

Upon doing a manual build (on an odriod u2 in a plain chroot, more 
information on the configuration of said machine can be provided if 
wanted) with the -f added I got another failure.

# use upstream version of smb.conf.5 if there is no built version
# this is a temporary workaround for #750593 in xsltproc
[ -e /usr/share/man/man5/smb.conf.5 ] || \
cp docs/manpages/smb.conf.5 
cp: cannot create regular file 
‘/samba-4.1.17+dfsg/debian/tmp/usr/share/man/man5/smb.conf.5’: No such 
file or directory

So I added a mkdir -p, that build is now running.

* Unfortunately britney doesn't check build-depends, so packages in 
Debian testing are not gauranteed to be buildable in a testing environment.
