You fix is correct; there are some stray carrige-returns in the
debian/control file. (I think you will find that bug in the
libmlx4/libcxgb3 packages too).

If you have  modified files in your tree, svn-buildpackage will complain
unless you feed it the:



The other package that will need attention is the ofa-kernel-source

I fixed some typos in that package a few days ago, so it is worth
pulling in the package from trunk rather than the OFED 1.4.2 tagged branch.

The rules file contains an architecture specific configure stanza, as
not all of the modules build on all architectures. There is currently no
section for PPC32, so you will have to cut-and-paste the i386 or amd64
examples. If you get stuck, please let me know.
