Source: webkit
Version: 1.6.1-5
Severity: serious
Tags: patch
Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)

Dear Maintainer,

This actually applies to 1.6.1-4 as well.  The Alpha architecture passes
the test mentioned in "webkit-1.6.1/Source/JavaScriptCore/wtf/dtoa/utils.h",
so a verified fix for the FTBFS condition is to simply append "|| CPU(ALPHA)"
to the system list in "webkit-1.6.1/debian/patches/01_double-conversion.patch".

The logfile for the last failed build:


-- System Information:
Debian Release: wheezy/sid
  APT prefers unreleased
  APT policy: (500, 'unreleased'), (500, 'unstable')
Architecture: alpha

Kernel: Linux 3.1.0
Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)
Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash
