Bug#423243: bad package description and man pages

Package: mklibs-copy
Version: 0.1.20
Severity: normal

Basically, there's not enough docs to differentiate this package from
mklibs. Problems include:

Description: Shared library reduction script
 mklibs-copy produces a minimal set of shared libraries that contain
 only the libs which are required by a particular set of executables.

Description: Shared library reduction script
 mklibs produces cut-down shared libraries that contain only the
 routines required by a particular set of executables.  This is
 useful when building closed systems where disk space is at a premium,
 such as the Debian installer.

It's impossible to tell from these descriptions why mklibs-copy is a separate
package or how it differs from mklibs or why you'd want to install it instead
of mklibs.


       mklibs-small - make a minimal set of libraries

The remainder of the man page is again identical to mklibs(1), so it's
difficult to chose between the two commands.


       mklibs - prints informations about ELF shared objects and executables
       ^^^^^^                     ^
       mklibs-readelf             "information" is not pluralised with an "s"
