Indeed. How do you suggest working through this? Facts:

1. The build hangs unpredictably on a doxygen call.
2. The doxygen call is in build-indep (so it is not strictly necessary
for binary only builds, but gets executed anyway).

I can move the doxygen call away from there into binary-indep, but that
feels like a hack to me. I have been trying to build the doxygen
documentation a few times, and it looks like either doxygen is doing
something wrong with pthread mutex calls or the hppa kernel/libc are
doing something wrong with the calls doxygen makes. I'm getting some
assertion failures now too:

doxygen: pthread_mutex_lock.c:62: __pthread_mutex_lock: Assertion
`mutex->__data.__owner == 0' failed.

All hangs and segmentation faults seem to happen inside synchronization
calls (futex calls). I have not been able to reproduce the hang in the
Generating docs for compound ... stage.

Not necessary, since the faulty command (doxygen) is already installed
and I do not plan on working around this bug by manually uploading a
package that will have the same problem again.
