Creating Upstream Tarball
-------------------------

The upstream maintainers distribute SML/NJ as a collection of
tarballs. This source package requires all of them, so the Debian orig
tar file contains all the upstream tarballs placed where the upstream
install.sh script expects them to be unpacked.

For example:

    smlnj-110.x.orig/ckit.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/config.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/MLRISC.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/cm.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/cml.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/compiler.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/eXene.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/ml-burg.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/ml-lex.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/ml-nlffi-lib.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/ml-nlffigen.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/ml-yacc.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/runtime.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/smlnj-c.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/smlnj-lib.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/system.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/src/tools.tgz

The upstream boot images, used to create the bootstrap compiler are
kept in the bootstrap directory, like this:

    smlnj-110.x.orig/bootstrap/boot.alpha32-unix.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/bootstrap/boot.hppa-unix.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/bootstrap/boot.mipseb-unix.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/bootstrap/boot.ppc-unix.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/bootstrap/boot.sparc-unix.tgz
    smlnj-110.x.orig/bootstrap/boot.x86-unix.tgz

Use the mkorig script in this directory to create the upstream tarball
as used by Debian. Support for the mkorig script has now been
integrated into the debian/watch file. Just calling "uscan" will now
automatically build a new tarball, if a new upstream version is
available. You will need to manually make the mkorig script executable:

$ chmod +x debian/mkorig
$ uscan --verbose

You can still call mkorig manually, although the syntax is a bit
different:

$ mkorig --upstream-version 110.53

SML/NJ for amd64 architecture
-----------------------------

This version of the smlnj package for the amd64 architecture has i386
binaries in it.  As the upstream says it:
    # As long as we do not natively support the amd64 architecture,
    # we should fallback to the x86 compatibility mode.  --Stef
      x86_64) ARCH=x86;;

Building packages at all for amd64 is arguably broken under these
circumstances, but it still seemed like the better option.  As long as
you're aware of this.
