I think there's x-x-video-openchrome too.

Ah, unforeseen issue with having proper dependencies against the
server now. Any chance it could be forced it with that known issue? We
could either exclude sparc from their arch list, or finally fix the
server (and I think its (single) dependency which needs something like
-fPIC or some reloc-related issue fixed) when we have time? Those
udebs aren't used on sparc anyway, so if you have a way to force them
in, we could keep track of the (consequence-less) “breakage” in a bug,
and I think everything else should be fine?

Thanks for the catch, and for your time.
