[Build-common-hackers] Bug#405413: /usr/lib/cdbs/list-packages doesn't honor DH_OPTIONS ?

Package: cdbs
Severity: wishlist

It's known that the gcj precompilation mechnism for jar files doesn't
work on all architectures yet (or it doesn't make sense to build these
on architectures with low memory, for example m68k). You can
explicitely enumerate all valid architectures in the Architecture:
field in the control file, but changes in the set of supported
architectures would need touching all source packages to add/subtract
an architecture.  As an alternative, you can mark this field as `any'
and not build the package on that architecture. Unfortunately
/usr/lib/cdbs/list-packages insists on building every package which it
finds in the control file, without honoring DH_OPTIONS = -N<pkg>. Is
there already a way to support this scenario, or could list-packages
honor DH_OPTIONS or something else?

Thanks, Matthias
