“git diff 663d5b5..cd65d60 | grep supported-sy” shows nothing.
I don’t see anything obvious in the logs.

In the current evaluation IceCat is there on all arches, though it only
succeeds on x86_64:

Everyone will agree with that, and everyone will agree that Someone must
fixed said bugs.

There’s also a practical issue not to be swept under the rug: when we
keep rebuilding known-to-fail packages on those architectures, we waste
