Package: xorg-docs-core
Version: 1:1.7.1-1
Tags: patch
Usertags: rebootstrap
Control: affects -1 + src:xterm

xterm cannot be cross built from source, because its build dependency on
xorg-docs-core is unsatisfiable. In general, Architecture: all packages
that are not marked Multi-Arch: foreign cannot satisfy cross
Build-Depends at all. I propose marking it Multi-Arch: foreign, because
it is Architecture: all, has no maintainer scripts or depdendencies. The
same holds for xorg-docs. Please consider applying the attached patch.
