This package is obsolete, mISDN has been merged into the mainline
kernel in 2.6.27 (and it's close to imposssible that this ancient
version still compiles against a kernel from squeeze or wheezy).
To work with the final in-kernel mISDN subsystem, an update to
mISDNuser >= 2.x would be required, as the userspace API of the
mISDN kernel subsystem has changed to a socket based one before it
could get merged mainline. While it might make sense to update/
overhaul this package for unstable, the current version in experimental
definately can't work with anything newer than lenny.
Disclaimer: I can't speak for the maintainer and haven't actually
tested mISDN in a long time.
