Replace "should" with "could" :) The packages in unstable are fine-tuned for
unstable, which can make them work improperly on stable. In practice, most
of them work with little or no modification on stable, though.

This happens because the version.ent file is automatically generated by
the makefile, and default one doesn't exist. Try using make.

Looks that way, yes... someone used &config files; or something like that (?)
