We finally have a problem to solve: bug #358493.

What happens is that building with g++ 4.0 on alpha fails, so we have to
compile tagcoll with whatever compiler in default on the various
architectures, but explicitly with g++ 4.1 on alpha.

This involves updating the build dependencies to depend on g++ 4.1 only
on alpha (g++ with default version should be in build-essentials
anyway), and update debian/rules so that it exports CXX=g++-4.1 to
./configure when "dpkg-architecture -i alpha" returns 0.

I won't do this tonight because I'm spent.  It is also nontrivial to me
to lookup how to conjure the versioned-only-one-arch build-depend.

For CDBS instead, it should just be something like:

ifeq ($(shell dpkg-architecture -ialpha && echo use-4.1),use-4.1)
  export CXX=g++-4.1

The stable version of tagcoll to work on is at:


Please let me know if you can't do it.
