Hm, regenerate which file? As far as I can see, the comment
is about the inability of gdb to do multi-threaded debugging,
which I can not do anything about :-(

I’ve asked the m68k porters and got no answer so far. The
gdb package we have in Debian is current, so it’s not a
matter of getting it more up to date either.

Since PHP is a build-dependency of quite a number of more
important packages, I’d like to just get the firebird2.5
module deactivated on m68k until it has been ported to m68k.
(IIRC we had firebird2.1 so it should be possible.) At the
current time, catching up with other architectures to not
get stuff totally unbuildable is more of a priority than
to have every single feature (especially considering the
lack of buildd and man power).

Thanks for having looked into this.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
