Ah thanks Jeff, very interesting. Looks like this has been an issue for
quite awhile. Any idea when this (with whatever logic) is this going to
get merged into the upstream dpkg-dev binary package? My google search
on this issue revealed other ports having problems too. I don't know if
this fix is universal. I wouldn't think it would be too hard to merge.
Yet I guess we are still in a freeze waiting for the Woody security
infrastructure issues to get worked out et al.

Good luck with that. Sounds frustrating.
