twm and xfree 4.1.0


as i posted in an earlier version i tested the xfree 4.1.0
packages markus supplied.

And i had the error that twm had no menu.

Now i got the big tar ball xfree86_4.1.0.orig.tar.gz (51MB)

But i dont know how to unpack it and start the build of the
xfree packages. If i do a dpkg-source -x xfree86_4.1.0-0pre1v3.dsc
i get a directory xfree86-4.1.0 which contains the directories
debian and upstream...  
But i cant run dpk-buildpackage on this.

And now i dont know further.

But i could find out why twm has no menu.
If i install the binary package i only have the file

under linux i have:

menudefs.hook  system.twmrc  system.twmrc-menu  system.twmrc.twm-old

I think these files get generated by the update-menus program.
Which gets called from twm.postinst.
If i execute update-menus it crashes with 

krypton:/etc/menu-methods# update-menus 
Update-menus[241]: Script /etc/menu-methods//twm recieved signal 13.
Is this sigpipe?

If i find out more ill let you know.

Thanks Fabian
