Uploaded dpkg (source i386 all) to infodrom

Hi out there,

here is another try to address some of the problems reported
for dpkg-1.4.0 and dpkg-  I hope it fixes more bugs
then introducing new ones.  (About the --compare-versions
option to dpkg I'm not very sure, please try it before relying on.)

Yesterday I've sent the diffs to Ian, but I got no response ...

Regarding the gain-root-command:  It's reverted to the old behaviour.
Since I never got sudo working for relative paths (like debian/rules
would be), I've written simple a `wrapper' around su for my own:

	su root -c "$args"

Not the pure elegance, but working for the usual build process.  To
avoid the password question I've patched su to accecpt an environment
var SUPASS (similiar to pgp and PGPPASS) -- since I'm mostly the one
and only on my machine, I think, it's quite secure ;-).

 dpkg ( unstable; urgency=medium
   * dpkg-buildpackage.sh: reverted the quoting change -- (you
     should use super, sudo, realy, but not su.  Or write a wrapper
     around su)
   * dpkg-buildpackge.sh: passing -m, -C, -v options to dpkg-genchanges
     more the way Ian likes ;-)
   * dpkg-source.pl: new function deoctify() as replacement for eval()
     (turn \ddd into the corresponding character) [rem: probably better
     solution would be to convert cpios output names into complete \ddd
     representation as well tars output names]
   * dpkg-source.pl: fixed 2 typos in failure message on creating
   * main/main.c: typo `tread' -> `treat'
   * main/enquiry.c: fixed the ignorance for some relations
     in --compare-versions
   * main/enquiry.c: missing version is now handled as
     described in `dpkg --help' (or at least as I understood
     `dpkg --help' PLEASE TRY IT)
   * lib/parsehelp.c: fixed parsing of epoch information
