All this things will be fixed by me. i'm actuallay only use the
directory tree and some specials like get_ltscfg all the other binarys
are copied by me from hand so on my ltsp package you run only (excluding
the lstconfs) "debian-binarys" ( i actually write a script wich will do
that) to the right place. long before i run dpkg-buildpackage.
so if lets say busybox get e security hole in this moment when i get an
update from sec.d.o    i build a new package with the fixed holes.
