What about building automaticaly in postinst?

Don't worry, I do it by hand :)

Ok. You can get my diffs from ftp.lander.es:/debian/local/source/

The answer is easy (I think): tcpserver with RBL support adds two
-s (Default.) Attempt to set BOUNCEMAIL using the IP
address from the RBL documented at
-S Do not attempt to set BOUNCEMAIL
So I suggest to just include only the rbl-patched version. I first
thought that default should be -S, but tcpserver primary use is for
qmail-smtpd, and before you can run tcpserver you have to read its
small manpage... so I think the default option is ok.
