[Gnewsense-dev] Builder and AMD64

Hi all,
I've just committed the last of my 'ready made' code for i386/amd64. I
had been hoping 2.2 would be out before I made all the commits, but
since upstream is being unhelpful (read slow)...

== What it is ==

A set of changes to Builders core that will (hopefully) make it easier
to build multiple arches. At the moment those arches are i386/amd64.

It is able to build *either* amd64 *or* i386, not both at the same time
yet (see below).

== What it isn't ==

Well, finished. It wont be until I've worked out how apt-utils or
reprepro work properly so Builder can share the archive between the two
architectures (at the moment you can only have one).

== How to use it ==

There is a "BUILDARCH" configuration option. Set this to the
architecture you desire.

== Testers wanted ==

I've tested it a lot in the past, but some of my last minute changes
were not tested doing an AMD64 run. If you can test it would be great.

== What i need help with ==

- If you can assist with understanding reprero/apt-utils that would
be great.
- amd64 testing.

== Plans ==

Finish the hacking off, so it can build both without clobbering each
others repositories.
Other stuff.
