I suspect they are the same (libroken and libotp) but not absolutely

In addition to those libraries, libss and libsl are also issues. I
tried using ss-dev in Debian already, but it doesn't appear to be

So I might have to repackage libss and libsl in Debian too. yuck. No,
I don't understand what these libraries do (I am sure I have been told
though). No, I don't mean libssl - thats completely different.

I have my latest source code for 0.7.1 online at
<URL:http://people.debian.org/~bam/> in case anybody wants to play
with it. At the moment it won't compile due to the libss/libsl
issue. There might be other compile issues, but I think I have fixed
them all.

The relevant patch file in debian/patches/012_sharedlibs, regenerate
the autoconf patch with debian/scripts/autotools. Requires automake

There is also the issue of the versioned symbols patch not applying

Any help appreciated, Thanks.
