[Pkg-octave-devel] dynare 4.1.0-1 build problems

The latest dynare 4.1.0-1 package FTBFS on several architectures [1].

On most archs (alpha, armel, hppa, mipsel), the problem is that a
particular test program takes too long without printing anything,
therefore the buildd thinks the build is stalled: the fix is probably to
remove the problematic test, which is relatively unimportant.

On a few archs (hurd-i386, ia64, mips) there are build deps problems,
which are not our responsibility.

The only real problem is for sparc, where a test fails with a bus error
[2], and it denotes a real bug (probably in a MEX file from Dynare, or
maybe in Octave).

The problem is that I don't have access to any sparc machine. Is there
any chance I can get access to a porterbox? Or should I ask somebody on
the debian-sparc list to kindly give me access to his box?
