(FTCBFS) Needs multi-arch metadata to satisfy build-dependencies

Bug #957045 reported by Wookey on 2012-03-16
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xfonts-encodings (Debian)
Fix Released
xfonts-encodings (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Any package 'X' build-depending on xfonts-utils cannot be
cross-built because apt-get build-dep -a<arch> cannot satisfy
X's build-dependencies until

Multi-Arch: foreign

is added to xfonts-encodings's control file, to indicate that xfonts-encodings from
any available arch will satisfy the dependency for xfont-utils.

There are 5 packages which build-depend on xfonts-utils in main and
another 34 in universe. None of them will be multiarch cross-buildable
without this fix.

xfonts-encodings (1:1.0.4-1ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/control: Mark as Multi-Arch: foreign to allow using this as
    build dependency for cross-building. (LP: #957045)
