relay-ctrl is the name of the program from Bruce Guenter, the upstream 
author. What name would you choose as an alternative?

The only other packages in Debian that are remotely related to this one 
is fake-qmail and ucspi-tcp-src, neither of which provide any binaries 
on their own. Many people choose to compile the core of qmail from the 
original sources using lifewithqmail.org as a guide, especially since 
the upstream author of qmail and ucspi has a restrictive license, hence 
this package listed under contrib.

The fake-qmail dependency might be nice, but the original packager 
from which I am adopting chose not to use it. I'd like to hear your 
reasoning behind adding other dependencies as I am new to the 
packaging world.

Cheers and thanks for the reply,
