And here are the first fruits:  unittests fail on some platforms (also I
have forgotten that $HOME is not guarantee to be writable, but that is
a pure packaging-related side-point):

All logs are available from

armel, powerpc, s390 (hppa is not yet done but probably the same) -- big endians:

e.g. https://buildd.debian.org/fetch.cgi?pkg=cython;ver=0.14.1-3;arch=armel;stamp=1298052709

I could be wrong but it seems they all boil down to
 FAIL: Doctest: dictintindex.__test__.test_get_char_neg (line 1)
 so the others fail as well, e.g.
 FAIL: Doctest: c_int_types_T255
 FAIL: Doctest: c_int_types_T255.__test__.test_char (line 90)
 FAIL: Doctest: dictintindex.__test__.test_get_char_neg (line 1)

otherwise -- amazingly nice ;-)
