Don't bother with the 1.4 branch.  Go for 2.0.

I did a preliminary package of 2.0 here, there weren't any problems
that I recall.

Don't make the mistake the recent NMU'er made: be sure to include more
recent config.guess and config.sub files, so the package compiles on
'unusual' arches (e.g. mips).

Keep me posted, but feel free to NMU if you like.

What would be even cooler is to have a trawl with balsa's bug list ;)
Only people with copious 'spare' time need apply!
