I sent a patch that did this, amongst other things, somewhere
June 1999, and I didn't even get so much as an email saying
``we can't use your patch like this'', or ``bugger off'' ...
I guess its moot now, but
* Fixed circular dependencies; configuration and compilation
(and packaging) do not depend on an installed dpkg anymore.
+ Configure/build/package without dpkg installed;
use newly built dpkg-* tools for packaging
+ Fixed dpkg-parsechangelog and dpgk-gencontrol '-L' switch
+ Added -L option to dpgk-gencontrol, passed on to dpgk-parsechangelog
