i didn't try, but it could work :


for A in `cat /var/lib/dpkg/info/$PACKAGE.conffiles`; do
	PARAM="$PARAM `basename $A` $A 0"

dialog --checklist "Include Config Files into Bug Report" 0 0 10 \
	$PARAM 2> /tmp/bug.dialog.$$

if [ -s "`cat /tmp/bug.dialog.$$`" ]; then
	for A in `cat /tmp/bug.dialog.$$`; do
		echo "------ $A"
		cat $A
	done >> /tmp/bug.report.$$;

rm /tmp/bug.dialog.$$

of course a better description would be great. maybe individual packages
can come with there own dialog script like

dialog --checklist "Bug Report about makedev $VERSION" 0 0 10 \
	/etc/devinfo "Database with device descriptions" 1 \
	/etc/makedev.cfg "Database with permissions for various devices" 1 \
	/dev "List of all devices in your /dev (ls -alr /dev)" 1 \
