severity: serious

In order for Debian to produce offical Debian CDs for HPPA they need
to be able to run palo on non-parisc systems, to make the CD images
bootable.  It is likely it needs to be packaged for i386, at least.
The problem is that a parisc (cross)compiler is needed to generate the
ipl code part of the palo build.

A proposed solution from Bdale is to include the ipl code binary in the
source package, and only regenerate it if building on parisc.
