  Don't look at me. I wasn't working for Mandriva when those started
being installed by default. I just changed the rpm specs to not
install them on newer versions...

  But it is good that it can build on x86, so, while it cannot be
"executed", compiler warnings can be checked, and one can check for
missing symbols (other then the sbus ones).
