Thank you for forgiving me. I upload it because I'm tired of hacking
the bugs in my rcfile. I hope it will be good for you.

I haven't touched debian/rules, so it still depends on quilt.

It should be 3.9.1 in the code. Maybe I did a wrong uploading.

debhelper will not install the slave manpage alternative if

I've provided the manpage alternative and confirmed Standards-Version
is 3.9.1. Please ignore my uploading and rebuild it.

Now I must read the guide first :)
