Actually, I tested it on a.d.nl myself :-)  That works fine.

$ ls -lc /usr/bin/dh_suidregister 
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         1831 Dec 22 08:49 /usr/bin/dh_suidregister

Looks like debhelper was upgraded on a.d.nl yesterday morning!

I don't think that it's that important to do an NMU; I'm sure there'll
be another version of mutt to frozen before the deepfreeze :-(
There are other things that also need NMU's for simple recompiles to
eliminate obsolete dependencies; libguile-1.2 is gone, and so is
libguile-1.3 (or is almost). Any others?  Anyway, I think that we
shouldn't get into a panic about this, seeing the rate of uploads into
frozen for i386; most will probably be rebuilt in the course of things

Everybody just make sure that they have the correct (latest) -dev
packages installed, before compiling stuff! (Yes, I've been guilty

Chris, are you going to do an upload of libc6.1-dev? If so, could you
fix the following line in /usr/include/netinet/ip_fw.h:

  u_int32_t fw_pcnt, fw_bcnt;           /* Packet and byte counters */

The u_int32_t should be unsigned long; that's what it is in the kernel
source.  This is what's screwing ipfwadm.
