Replaces gcc, cc, and g++ with scripts that build pentium optimized code.
(Other processors can be optimized for as well.)
By default, after installing this package, the compilers will behave
normally. However, if the environment variable DEBIAN_BUILDARCH=pentium
is set, they will enter pentium optimized compile mode.

* Not entirely sure about making this package non-native.  
* Acknowledge NMU, thanks Amaya Rodrigo Sastre (Closes: #359560, #169159).
* Fixed bug where it doesn't handle DEBIAN_BUILDGCCVER being defined
while DEBIAN_BUILDARCH is not, thanks Michael Blakeley (Closes:

pentium-builder (0.18-1.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Get rid of the /usr/doc link in postinst (Closes: #359560).
* Change occurences of DEBAIN to DEBIAN in manpages (Closes: #169159).
* Package switches from native to non-native

pentium-builder (0.18) unstable; urgency=low
* Horrible bug: the pentium-builder scripts fail silently and indicate
success to the parent process if they are unable to execute the real
compiler. Execution can fail due to a variety of temporary or
permanent problems. In the case of pentium-builder, the chief problem
was calling a binary that wasn't there. pentium-builder now prints a
diagnostic and terminates with a non-zero exit code if execution
fails. Thanks Francesco Potorti`. (closes: Bug#151077)
* Updated copyright.

pentium-builder (0.17) unstable; urgency=low
* Acknowledge NMU, thanks Junichi Uekawa. (closes: Bug#126243)
* Cleaned up man pages.

pentium-builder (0.16.1) unstable; urgency=low
* NMU at the request of maintainer.
* merging athlon-builder to pentium-builder (closes: #122488, #95393)

pentium-builder (0.16) unstable; urgency=low
* Removed --print-libgcc-file-name kludge because it causes problems
when used as input to 'gcc -E'. (closes: Bug#106727)
2001-07-15 - Alex Pennace <>
pentium-builder (0.15) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer. (closes: Bug#100372)
* Fixed --print-libgcc-file-name kludge. Note that 'dpkg
--print-architecture' warns about the strange gcc output but otherwise
behaves as expected, and dpkg-architecture will return i386. This may
cause other problems. (closes: Bug#92325)
* Arranged for proper Perl dependency with dh_perl.
* Changed debhelper build dependency from Build-Depends-Indep to
Build-Depends, since dh_testdir is called from the build target in
debian/rules, see Debian Policy Manual ver. sec. 7.6.
* Added dependency on 'gcc | g++'; the package is useless without either
of those packages.
* Added basic manual pages for builder-cc and builder-c++.
* New copyright file.
* Complies with Debian Policy ver.; updated Standards-Version
control field accordingly.

* I forgot to change the maintainer field...
* Standards-Version: 3.5.2 (no changes)
