My mistake, the package wans't broken, it was actually that the binary's
itself that don't wan't to call DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Arch Linux" in

Ncbi-tools just calls the lsb_release tool to get information about the
system so I'll have to try another approach.

Sorry to bother ya

What exactly is broken in the current package? Also, have you tried 
patching ncbi-tools to build correctly with the present lsb-release package?

Both questions are sincere as I don't have experience with either software.
