Yes. The script should check for the presence of /etc/suid.conf before
attempting to call suidregister.

Dont worry about that. I just have some trouble figuring out where all the
packages went and to figure the ones I still am responsible to. As long as
my e-mail address is in a package I will get e-mail regarding that package
