Source: bc
Version: 1.07.1-1
Severity: important

I just noticed that on building bc, it hangs for quite a while at the
point where it's calling "dh_auto_install".  Top shows that eventually
it's creating an infinite chain of processes "make global.o" and the
build only succeeds once these processes have filled the process
table.  Given that, it probably makes sense to just skip trying to run
"dh_auto_install", and instead provide an "override_dh_auto_install"
which runs the "make install" manually.  (Unless you can determine
that there's a bug in either the bc Makefile, or in dh_auto_install,
that you can fix.)
