Because there are bugs in the scilab compilation system...
I will try to fix them for the version 4.1 of Scilab.

Sorry for this !

If it is not possible to compile correctly scilab 4 for AMD64, would it be possible to have an entire 3.0 version. Because for now, there is scilab 4.0 and scilab-bin 3.0 which make it impossible to install.

scilab 4.0 works fine on Debian etch and 11 architectures including amd64. Just the Ubuntu package is still broken.
