Cannot build on arm architecture

openmpi (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This package is specifically not supported for arm. There are a limited set of architectures that are supported, and this is because the package uses some architecture specific assembly. While the binary packages list the explicit subset of supported architectures in the control file, there is also a "common" and "doc" package that are currently built for architecture: all, and for this reason a build is attempted from the archive for armel and fails immediately in configure.
