Reiserfs and shlibs

Hi All,

This is just FYI. If you are building a deb package and use shlibs to build dependencies, then you might want to use a ext2 filesystem instead of a reiserfs filesystem. 

The reason behind it is that shlibs depend on the ordering on files in a directory while reiserfs which stores the filename in btree makes it difficult to order the files.

If you ever get the error during lintian :

it could be because of reiserfs.
