Wookey, one of the ARM porters, confirmed me (on Nov. 21) that it was
still not buildable:

(08:13:44 PM) wookey: gwolf - the patch in #339758 does not seem to be
    in /usr/include/fitsio2.h in libcfitsio3
(08:13:57 PM) wookey: that might explain why its not workgin
(08:45:30 PM) wookey: rebuiding libcfitsio3 with the patch now
(09:50:29 PM) wookey: OK, with a rebuilt patched  libcfitsio3
libastro-fits-cfitsio-perl build and runs tests OK too 
(09:51:59 PM) wookey: so the prob seems to be that the (final) just
    got missing out of cfitsio3_3.006-1

I'm sorry for asking him and not following up on his reply - Could you
check this with him on IRC? (...maybe I should declare myself on
semi-VAC? :( )
