missing utemp is ok, but root.. well, kind of, but you should not build
packages as root but by using fakeroot or sudo

you need both when you upload them, for installing you need only the .deb,
you can install it with dpkg just like any other deb, the m68k is in the
filename for master to notice for what architecture your deb is, it will be
moved to the correct directory after uploading.

I didn't get the beginning, which utils? When I build packages, they allways
start from scrtch with compiling, wether I change the source or not, so the
answer could be YES :-)

together with some others. Files found there are only for testing, etc, etc.
