Create Debian chroot
apt-get install debian-ports-archive-keyring
/usr/sbin/sbuild-createchroot --keyring=/usr/share/keyrings/debian-ports-archive-keyring.gpg --include=debian-ports-archive-keyring unstable build/chroot-unstable
In each chroot to be fixed
In each chroot, you need to remove the link in the /usr/hppa64-linux-gnu directory to /usr/include. If you want, you can create a /usr/hppa64-linux-gnu/include directory but nothing gets installed there.
ls -lad /home/build*/build*/chroot-*/usr/hppa64*/include
