ok i did the packages because i needed them, and also to test all of this,
dbild, how to upload packages and so on ...
actually the package is not broken, it is only that the .orig.tar.gz contained
a directory who was not correctly named as packagename-version. i think this is
because the upstream maintainer changed the package name without changing the
.orig.tar.gz. i guess i should fill a bug against the package.

as for dbuild, i played with it a lot this weekend before being able to use it
it goes like this :
dbuild -v -p -r sudo(or whatever) package.dsc
and it builds the package ...
but first you have to put your pgp passphrase into the PGPPASS variable, not
the nicest thing around ...
how do you actually use pgp ? there are two packages, pgp-i and pgp-us. both
providing executables like their name, but no pgp binary. i had to do a symlink
to one of them ...
