I'm working on building some armhf packages of both bluez5 and pulse for those who feel up to testing on touch as well, however bluez5 seems to be misbehaving on armhf, at least on real hardware and in a chroot when built by hand. The libdir argument is being given twice to the configure script. I'll ahve a dig to see if I can work out what is going on.

I currently have it sitting in a git branch here in the pkg-pulse debian packaging git tree. I'll push it to the pulseaudio-5 bzr branch, lp:~ubuntu-audio-dev/pulseaudio/pulseaudio-5 for now, but we need to decide what we want to do re packaging going forward, particularly if it helps with cherry-picking patches back and forth to/from Debian.
