Bug Description

The package currently cannot be built on s390x because it needs manual bootstrapping, as it depends on itself for build.

Here are some briefs hints on how to achieve this:

<schopin> Anyone here has any experience bootstrapping a language in a "new" architecture? picolisp FTBFS on s390x because it needs itself, and I'm idly wondering how to solve the problem
<xnox> schopin: use debian's build to build ubuntu package; vendor it in a source package; upload to bileto ppa; rebuild again afresh; publish to ubuntu archive; rebuild in ubuntu archive proper again.
<xnox> schopin: alternative is to cross-build the first one.
<xnox> schopin: sometimes, debian/* has instructions for bootstrapping. as the first upload of the thing had to be bootstrapped by the person
