Thanks for taking a look.

I agree with the rest of the things that I don't comment on, I
probably forgot to run lintian after the modifications. (I did this a
while ago, but wanted to push this out to not stay in a corner of my
laptop indefinetly).

Yes, I noticed that, and assume that this is some oversight from
upstream when creating the tarball or something.  There's a new
version of the tarball since a couple of days ago [1], but didn't
check it.

I think that Debian i386 is actually i486, or at least optimised for
i486 even if it should run in i386 also -- but I don't know for sure.
So if those are enabled, we will have to disable them, yes.
