A while ago a patch was applied to fix this bug, but then it was
promptly reverted, because there were some doubts if our infrastructure
was ready for architecture wildcards.
There are no such doubts anymore: architecture wildcards are used by
hundreds of packages. Please drop the build-dependency on not+linux-gnu
and use architecture wildcards instead.
Moreover, the last mc release (3:4.8.1-1) changed the build-dependency
libgpm-dev | type-handling | not+linux-gnu
I don't know could be the possible rationale for such alternative, but
this is completely wrong.
