archive-cruft-check doesn't pick up all cruft

Bug #276629 reported by Steve Kowalik on 2008-10-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Running on drescher generates a list of binary packages that are no longer built from source, but it misses some.

lp_archive@drescher:~$ m -s intrepid lib32ffi4 lib64ffi4 gcc-4.2
 lib32ffi4 | 4.2.3-2ubuntu7 | intrepid/universe | amd64
 lib64ffi4 | 4.2.3-2ubuntu7 | intrepid/universe | i386, powerpc, sparc
   gcc-4.2 | 4.2.4-3ubuntu2 | intrepid | source, amd64, hppa, i386, ia64, lpia, powerpc, sparc

As you can see, both lib32ffi4 and lib64ffi4 used to be built from the gcc-4.2 source package, but aren't any more.

lp_archive@drescher:~$ m -s hardy lib32ffi4 lib64ffi4 gcc-4.2
 lib32ffi4 | 4.2.3-2ubuntu7 | hardy | amd64
 lib64ffi4 | 4.2.3-2ubuntu7 | hardy | i386, powerpc, sparc
   gcc-4.2 | 4.2.3-2ubuntu7 | hardy | source, amd64, hppa, i386, ia64, lpia, powerpc, sparc

They were, however, built from the version of gcc-4.2 published in hardy, which may be why they don't show up.
