we are in the process of bootstrapping a Debian port for the
riscv64 architecture ( The
binary packages libverto-dev and libverto-libev1 are part of the
build-dependency chain for the essential package set, so we need
to cross-build them for riscv64 to be able to complete the
bootstrap process.  Unfortunately it is currently impossible to
cross-build libverto as-is due to the following situation:

The package curently has a "hard" build-dependency on
libglib2.0-dev, which is only needed for building libverto-glib1,
but not for the other binary packages built from the libverto
source package.  For cross-building libverto-glib1, one would
need to install libglib2.0-dev for the host architecture, but
that isn't possible due to components of glib2.0 pulled in by
that not being multiarch-coinstallable with their build-arch
equivalents and debhelper transitively depending on the same
components for the build-arch.

The solution for this issue is adding a pkg.libverto.noglib
build-profile to the package, which disables building the
libverto-glib1 binary package and the corresponding
build-dependency when set. Attached is a patch implementing

It would be great if you could upload a new version of libverto
with the patch applied to unstable soon as we depend on this
for completing our bootstrapping efforts.
