Making base libc5 free
I have noticed that bsdutils and procps are still depending on libc5 and
have made non-maintainer releases for them. Shall I upload them?
Both packages are currently available from ftp.fuller.edu/Linux.
The changes for procps are extensive. Those for bsdutils are trivial.
I certainly do not want to become the maintainer for either package.
Here is the changelog for psutils. I basically took the upstream release
from sunsite copied the debian and psmisc directories over and added
all the files I found missing and fixed the Makefiles.
