Bug#484674: mldonkey: Packaging too complex

YVMV, but MLDonkey is also designed to work as a P2P service,
some people even use it on dedicated download servers, this is
especially true since MLDonkey contains build-in multiuser functionality.

You may have hit an upstream bug, please post the error messages
you are seeing with running "make utils opt".
I just tested "./configure && make utils opt" and it compiled w/o errors.
