Hi Bas! I checked the code and the problem is that GLU (<OpenGL/glu.h>) is not 
supported/does not supports OpenGL ES, which is the native OpenGL mode on 
those two archs.

In this case let me recommend you to limit qlandkartegt to build on !armel 
!armhf and ask for the binaries to be removed on those archs when you push the 
package to unstable.

Of course a much better solution is to port the code away from Glu, but that 
requires more manpower :-/ . On the other hand porting the code means it will 
be possible to run it on quite more embedded devices in a native (non software 
emulated) way.

Kinds regards, Lisandro.
