I saw this very weird bug report... I suspect it's a problem with either
Perl or the pthreads library on HPPA.

I do not know how feasible it is to supply different configure arguments
for different architectures in Debian, but you can avoid the problem
by using:

   ./configure --disable-embedded-perl

when building the package.  This will, of course, make the HPPA .deb different
from all the other architectures.
