I'm using scratchbox on Linux, and have thumb too. So it's a bug not only
in the virtual image. Or maybe it's "thumb-1".
But autobuilder is using scratchbox too, doesn't it? Are there problems
with some autobuilder built packages?

> Maemo SDK virtual image which can be downloaded from location:

> file Maemo_Ubuntu_Lucid_Desktop_SDK_Virtual_Image_Final.7z
> Problem is in scratchbox and may be in regular scratchbox

> Check if you have problematic scratchbox:
> 1. Login to scratchbox: run /scratchbox/login
> 2. print DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS in scratchbox: echo $DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
> If it does *not* show "thumb" your scratchbox is already fixed
> and thumb is disabled. If it *show* thumb, disable it.
> Instructions how to disable *thumb* string in scratchbox:
> 1. Login to scratchbox: run /scratchbox/login
> 2. Edit file /targets/FREMANTLE_ARMEL.environment
> 3. Remove "thumb" from that file
> 4. Save file and *logout* from scratchbox
> Note that scratchbox is loading DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS variable at
> startup, so you need to restart scratchbox to take effect. After
> restarting please check again if thumb is really disabled.
