Whats the problem? "Built successfully" isn't exactly a build error to me. ;-)

well, maybe have a look at the build log?

Our automated build log filter detected the problem(s) above that will
likely cause your package to segfault on architectures where the size of
a pointer is greater than the size of an integer, such as ia64 and amd64.

This is often due to a missing function prototype definition.

Since use of implicitly converted pointers is always fatal to the application
on ia64, they are errors. Please correct them for your next upload.

Well, it's just that the bug description says "Failed to build", so that's what I was looking for in the build log. So it's actually just a warning.

This kind of report always useful, but I'm not aware of any crash on 64-bit systems, and this package hasn't changed since Maverick (that code even hasn't been touched for ages). So it's indeed just a prototype issue.

As the gnome-system-tools are deprecated I don't plan to fix this warning upstream. So I'm not sure it makes sense for Ubuntu to fix that before Natty is out. Anyway, the exact error is:
> Function `bsearch' implicitly converted to pointer at connection.c:542
