Okay about the error form buildd for sparc64 ...

WARNING: mirror '' appears to
be invalid; skipping

That's done by line 80 of gen-sources.list.udeb from utils. It's
checking if the udeb components are available in the repo ...

What's the deference with ports from the Releases file that is called?

Contents-udeb-amd64 vs our architecture from contrib, main, non-free?
So we just need the generate Contents-udeb-{arch} files to succeed it?

But maybe I am wrong.
