 Raspian is not Debian.  They decided to call their architecture for dpkg
 purposes 'armhf', but Debian's armhf requires an arm v7 CPU whereas the
 raspberry pi is only an arm v6.

 Debian's armel architecture runs on the raspberry pi, but you don't get
 hardfloat and maybe other benefits of the CPU.  Tor's armel .deb packages
 work just fine on that.
