The package was attempted to build but failed to build at that time (for
what ever reason). As obviously nobody looked at the build failures, the
build was never retried (or fixed).
For ia64, sparc and lpia the build attempt was 2 months later than i386,
amd64 and powerpc. It looks like that the build problem resolved itself
overtime as for them the build succeeded.
