To explain that a bit further: as far as I remember, it took bento many
weeks (if not months) to notice the packaging issue on sparc64, I couldn't
use panther back then, and I didn't receive a single complaint for about
half a year, despite plain `make install` being broken.
(Make no mistake, I spent many, many hours improving the gcc ports in the
last months, and thanks to these cleanups sparc64 at least installs now;
to also fix packaging would be relatively straightforward but apparently
we don't have any real users on sparc64?)
