-m --build-as -nobody is fine on intel and powerpc 10.5. and 10.4.
info and deb files validated.
Section devel is still appropriate.
I need it only on i386 for the freepascal crosscompiler to i386-linux.
However, some people might find it useful on powerpc, too.
Check with basic commands and with the freepascal crosscompiler was successful.
BTW. To me there is no obvious reason not to close the tracker of the previous version 2.18.
