Quite easy, it is an automatic proccess, once I sent the debianized
gambas sources, they compile it in every platform in different machines
( http://db.debian.org/machines.cgi ). In the control file, inside the
debian directory in the sources, they check and fulfil the dependencies.
The rest depends on how every debian package is prepared for every
platform, how correctly you made the sources, specially the Makefile,
and wether the config.sub and config.guess are right . Remember I asked
you to refresh those two files before uploading the sources to Debian.
I don't want to start a flame, but Debian is probably the most solid
distribution for servers because they solve every problem in every
platform before releasing a new version. Probably, that's why the are
also the most slowly releasing new versions. Sometimes this is a defect,
sometimes a virtue.
