Hm, I received this obviously too late :(
I just uploaded a miniture `last' package: nothing but the binary and the
copyright file. As there isn't a manpage in the acct sources, I just refer to
the info file from the acct package. That's not optimal but all I can offer
before September 25. IMHO, the last package should go into binary/base.
The acct package, with or without last, is currently incomplete. 'sa' doesn't
compile under the current kernel. I don't know if or when a new kernel patch
comes out. I fixed some of the pending bugs, but it's not a package that I am
too proud of.
