I'll do that.

I'm not sure. Russ pointed out there's no real need to upgrade compat by now.
But if you have more to say about that, I'm happy to hear.

Isn't GPL just a symlink to GPL-2? And GPL 3.0 is still unreleased, so I think
there is no ambiguity in pointing to GPL.

This warning doesn't show up on my system. I guess it's because I'm building
it under Sarge, and Etch has a greater standard-version. Where can I find the
right standard-version for Etch?
