I've been using the dpkg patches posted here last month, and it's
currently summer vacation with my job not starting until next week :) I've
just got hold of a laptop, so once I've got Debian and NetBSD on it I'm
heading outside to some grass to hack on it in the sun...

libncurses is proving, erm, awkward. The build scripts are generating
libraries of the form libncurses.so rather than libncurses.so.5, which
confuses the deb scripts quite horribly. Strangely, this doesn't look like
it happens with the NetBSD port, so I'm going to go and play with this for
a while. Has anyone else had any joy in getting it built properly?
