I tried to reproduce the issue, but sadly I failed in doing so. In my 
(emulated) armhf environment, building the package succeeds.

Details on my build environment (QEMU-powered Debian sid ARMHF guest on 
Ubuntu host):

# cat /etc/debian_version

# uname -a
Linux debian-armhf 3.2.0-4-vexpress #1 SMP Debian 3.2.51-1 armv7l GNU/Linux

# apt-show-versions build-essential debhelper tcllib gcc tcl tcl-dev tcl8.6
build-essential:armhf/sid 11.7 uptodate
debhelper:all/sid 9.20150628 uptodate
gcc:armhf/sid 4:4.9.2-4 uptodate
tcl:armhf/sid 8.6.0+8 uptodate
tcl-dev:armhf/sid 8.6.0+8 uptodate
tcl8.6:armhf/sid 8.6.4+dfsg-2 uptodate
tcllib:all/sid 1.17-dfsg-1 uptodate

What I did:

apt-get source nsf
apt-get build-dep nsf
cd nsf-2.0.0
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc

gives me

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 303662 Jul 30 11:49 ../nsf_2.0.0-1_armhf.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  25394 Jul 30 11:49 ../nsf-dev_2.0.0-1_armhf.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  20870 Jul 30 11:49 ../nsf-shells_2.0.0-1_all.deb

How can I best simulate the environment at the buildd box? Is there a 
chance to obtain a core dump from the buildd box, alternatively?
