[Pkg-octave-devel] Bug#292917: needs to depend on f2c on m68k?

Package: octave2.1-headers
Version: 2.1.64-1
Severity: important

I've seen several octave-related packages fail to build on m68k, with
errors like so:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lf2c
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

If it's octave2.1-headers (well, /usr/bin/mkoctfile) that is introducing
this extra linker flag, perhaps it should also depend on f2c (on m68k only),
so packages building against octave2.1 don't have to special case m68k
each time on their own.
