Built fine locally and on our Jenkins. Uploaded it to Debian
Experimental yesterday.

We again got a few build-failures on the build daemons, but this time
on different architectures than with 5.0.5-dev-2, namely amd64 (Linux)
and s390x while kfreebsd-amd64 worked fine this time:


On amd64 (aka x86_64) the testsuite was hanging and killed after 150

On s390x, gcc was killed after 150 minutes of inactivity:

At the moment the latter looks more like a platform issue to me as the
same happened with a rebuild of 5.0.5 due to glibc bugfixes while it
didn't fail two months ago with a previous glibc version. I'll talk to
the s390 porters about this.

Since they don't seem to show up under some (yet unclear) conditions
and even then not permanently (more intermittent), I don't consider
them release-critical despite I need to find a way to avoid them in
Debian deterministically before I upload it to "unstable" instead of
