+1 for CLI tools!

The last time this came up [0] it was said that maybe it's not really
correct to make these properties of the package, but rather of the CI
jobs. It makes sense but we need a solution, or stop supporting
underpowered architectures like armhf, because most of those machines
can't build this stuff themselves, and it's not good to advertise
support to people who will just be disappointed later.

Yeah.  I think we need to look at these on a case-by-case basis.  Guile
is one of those packages known to hit the max-silent-time of 1h (?)
that’s configured on berlin.  Hopefully it will no longer be the case
starting from 3.0.3.

What about Linux-libre?  Does it hit the max absolute build time on

I misdiagnosed the issue, substitutes for it are available now and previous
