Forksforme (on sarge). Looking at the differences, I see that your
md5sums has "<md5sum>  ./usr/bin/glurp", while on my system, I get
"<md5sum>  usr/bin/glurp". Indeed lintian chokes on the './' in front,
which is a bug in lintian.

It'd be interesting to know why on your system you get this additional
'./' though.
