Things look pretty much ready to go.  I had a few lintian problems which
justfied a rebuild this (er, Sunday) afternoon, but I had to leave before it was
quite finished (it takes over an hour).  I won't be able to check on it again
until Monday evening, but if it looks good, it should go out shortly thereafter.

CVSup also builds perfectly, and will go out just as soon as PM3 is accepted
into Potato.  (Since CVSup depends on libpm3, it would be pretty useless to put
it out sooner.)

Note that the gdb in PM3 is a special version which recognizes Modula-3 code
(naturally).  Source archive is around 28MB, though.  :)
