[pkg-wine-party] Bug#803778: wine-development: arch all FTBFS on 64-bit architectures

Package: wine-development
Version: 1.7.54-1
Severity: serious
Justification: arch indep FTBFS on 64-bit architectures


The manpages are now built by upstream together with the binaries [1,
2]. The wine manpage is built together with wine32 (there is no separate
manpage for  wine64). So manpages are only built in arch specific
builds, but not in arch independent.
Since atm the manpages are part of the package wine-development (arch
all), there is a FTBFS on arch "all" if the buildd for "all" is 64-bit.

The amd64 and arm64 builds only succeeded because the buildds only build
arch specific packages there.

I'm filing this bug to prevent the incomplete builds to migrate to
testing (don't know if this would be possible).

Currently I'm testing a fix by simply installing the manpages in the
wine32-development package. I will commit that soon.

This fix implies that the wine script and the links in /usr/bin don't
have a manpage if only wine64 is installed, but not wine32. Since this
setup isn't supported upstream, I don't see this as a real issue. (Note
todo: lintian-overrides).
