I think it's much more deeply broken: ABS is not synchronized with
binary packages, so we can get binaries at one sync and ABS hours/day
later.  I believe we should get from Arch only sources and build our own
binaries, so we have verified availability of sources and can do
important improvements like debug symbol packages that GNUtoo suggested.
(This needs much work and a build server.)
