Package: gnome-settings-daemon
Version: 3.4.2+git20121218.7c1322-3
Followup-For: Bug #629351

Sorry for the long long delay. It took time to fix the X server issue on my
Yeeloong mipsel box.

It turned out this issue still persists, and the same solution, dropping
"-Wl,-z,defs" from LDFLAGS still fixes the problem. I'm attaching the patch
that modifies debian/rules that also exclude mipsel from add the flag, together
with ia64. 

Long story: after X server started to work, gdm3 would display the "Oh no!
Something has gone wrong" dialog, the same as #687569 [1]. However it was not
cause by graphic driver, and after inspecting :0-greeter.log, it turned out it
was actually gnome-settings-daemon that segfaulted.

As stated above, this bug renders GNOME unusable on mipsel on wheezy. As the
change is trivial, I would like to suggest incorporate the patch on stable
release as well, and include it in the next point release.
