Unfortunately, running "debian/rules patch" is going to be difficult, as the site runs on a FreeBSD system :)  (It's a friend's system that has lots of spare cpu cycles and bandwidth available.) > Ideally, you would also unpack multi-tarball packages such as gcc > before indexing.

The FAQ claims it won't work "perfectly", but maybe it'll do.  Whose bug is it if FreeBSD's gunzip can't decompress some Debian packages?
