Hi Debian buildd maintainers for our 64-bit big-endian platforms! monkeysphere 0.43-3 FTBFS on ppc64, s390x, and sparc64. I traced the problem down to https://bugs.debian.org/928963 in GnuPG, which is now fixed upstream (https://dev.gnupg.org/T4501) and patched in debian unstable.
This was a subtle bug in GnuPG's use of the GCrypt S-Expression string-assembling printf-style interface. On platforms where int and size_t are the same size, or on little-endian platforms where size_t is bigger than int, there was no problem. However, ppc64, s390x, and sparc64 all are "weird" enough that this subtle bug in GnuPG manifested itself there. With that issue fixed, monkeysphere builds and tests fine on s390x (i've tested directly on the porterbox zelenka.debian.org) and it should be fine on the other platforms as well. if you could poke your architecture's build daemon to give back monkeysphere 0.43-3, that would be great! All the best, --dkg
