When building toshutils, which I am in the process of adopting, on
Anibal's pbuilder, I get the above linda warnings.  I asked him and he
suggested that I re-ask these questions on debian-devel.  I am
wondering poeple think of the following:

1) The menu warnings.  The list of files in /usr/bin shows that
dispswitch, tuxtime-conf, and wmtuxtime are in fact in the package.  As
far as xmessage, that is in the xbase-clients package, an indirect
dependency.  Lintian also gave the same warning, but I setup an override
to suppress the warning.  Is this OK?  What about the other files that
it says are not there?

2) Should I do anything about the timestamp warnings on config.guess and
config.sub?

3) I already discussed the warning about depending on automake and
autoconf with Anibal and he seems to think it is justified.  Are there
any disagreements?
