Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.20
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

When building a large package I ran into the fact that my /tmp was too
small for gzip to run during dpkg-deb. I first tried setting TMP and
TEMP which did not help. My patch adds a note about this (feel free to
move it to another place in the man page). Also it changes the man
page, that now dpkg\-deb is used consistently. Finally I added a few
section markers for programs (e.g. gzip(1)). If you don't like the
latter two, please consider applying at least the first.

TMPDIR is one of the "common" environment variables to specify the
temporary directory, I don't feel it needs documenting; neither does the
fact that running out of temp can cause problems -- that should be
obvious.
