OK. I suppose that when you say "compile" you mean something
like "prepare", "package", etc...

I restored the lines but I don't quite understand your comment.
Since config.sub and config.guess are not used by vbackup at all why are they
needed for debian? vbackup is a set of shell scripts and currently there is
no intention to include code that requires compilation.
I've sent the 3rd version to mentors but it didn't show at the web interface.
Looking at ftp://mentors.debian.net/ I see that there are other packages left
in the same condition too. Is this expected behaviour ?
