This is what I've discovered. I took the Snort (2.0.0-2) source package,
modified the build dependencies to match the appropriate package versions
that were in stable, and build a new source package and then ran pbuilder
It built fine, but when I installed it, all the debconf dialog boxes came
up without any messages.
