Recent buildd frustrations

You know what happens when someone installs apt with authentication support without checking whether it's possible to disable that? Ugly things. Someone told me on IRC that it's supposed to be possible to disable that authentication by specifying 'APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated "true";' in a file in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d, which is exactly what I did. No luck, however.

Another problem is the recent upgrade to GCC4, which seems to be fairly buggy on m68k. GCC3, which exists for quite a long time is now fairly bugfree (the last Internal Compiler Error I've seen from GCC3 must've been months ago), but since I installed GCC4 on kiivi, I've seen far, far higher numbers of those bastards. According to the interface behind, we're on 13 of these bastards (and counting).


Guess we'll have some work to do.
