I'm not thrilled about having to migrate my old box that I use every now
and then to another distro but I'll manage.

What I want to verify is that the change you're pushing is the minimal
possible change to dbscripts, ABS and devtools per Florian's request,
right? For example, it's fine to delete the *-i686-build symlinks. But
archbuild should keep the part of its code that determines an arch from
$0 so that we are still future proof in supporting multiple architectures.
