Hello folks,

I'm not quite sure what to do with this, and perhaps I should be filing
a bug against ftp.debian.org for an architecture removal, but I'll file
it here as a weird sort of unblock first to see if that's the right thing
to do.

The problem is that g++ bug #630752 means that shibboleth-sp2 cannot
build on armel (the bug is present even when built with no optimization),
which is now blocking migration of xml-security-c (along with xmltooling,
opensaml2, and shibboleth-sp2), which has a security fix.

I don't know what the options are here.  Is there a way to force the
migration and temporarily pull shibboleth-sp2 from testing for armel?
I don't really want to remove the binaries from unstable as well, since
the package really *should* build for armel and will again as soon as
this bug is fixed, but maybe that's the right short-term fix?
