+# Building
+Run `debian/rules patch` to apply patches (instead of having it done during the
+build). Then you can edit files manually.
+Several passes: `libc`, `i686`, `xen`; `EGLIBC_PASSES='libc i686'`, etc.
+If building with `EGLIBC_PASSES=libc` (more specifically, without `xen`), the
+`libc0.3-dev_extra_pkg_install` rule in `debian/sysdeps/` will
+fail. (Same for `libc6-dev_extra_pkg_install` in `debian/sysdeps/`, for
+example.) Why is this special handling only done for `xen`, but not for
+Do `export LC_ALL=C` before building, otherwise the testsuite/make error
+messages will be different from those stored in the
+`debian/testsuite-checking/expected-results-*` files.
+Run `debian/rules build-arch DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=parallel=2 [EGLIBC_PASSES=...]`.
+Can stop with `C-c` during locale stuff or testsuite if only interested in the
+build tree.
