[Build-common-hackers] Bug#438372: varying installation directories

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.48
Severity: important

Consider a package building a package on any architecture, and a
second one on some architectures only:

  Package: gdb
  Architecture: any

  Package: gdb64
  Architecture: powerpc sparc

Now cdbs assumes that on i386 the package temp directory is
debian/gdb, while on powerpc it is debian/tmp, which makes further
packaging/modifications more difficult or impossible when you want to
use .install files.

See http://people.debian.org/~doko/tmp/ for a test package.
