Fix libathdir to have a sane compiled-in default for ATHENA_SYS

Cc: Fixed in version:
Upstream bug:


At build time, libathdir saves the value of ATHENA_SYS as a compiled-in default in case the users environment is wacky. However, we don't set ATHENA_SYS usefully in the build chroots, so it ends up with amd64_deb50 for all platforms, which is wrong.

We should set ATHENA_SYS correctly when building libathdir. We can do this by build-depending on machtype, and using that to get the sane value.

Note that fixing this will require re-building any package that uses libathdir, courtesy of #70

  • Status changed from new to proposed

Uploaded to proposed, although this won't actually take affect with consumers of libathdir until they're rebuilt against the new version.

This was moved to production a long time ago.
