Apparently, your patch was undone at some point before 1.0, or else someone
added new va_args material which required my new patch. Can you point to
somewhere in the new source where your va_args work is there, so the
maintainer (Greg Stark) will accept this part of the patch?
On the other part (looking in /usr/include/db1/ for ndbm.h), Greg has said
that it should build without this, but hasn't given enough Build-Depends for
me to successfully do this. Any ideas?
In any case, is this going to get built for PPC (or ARM, though no recent
non-US has been built for ARM...) in time for potato? Or are people waiting
for Greg to approve something? I can't build it without this patch, and it
seems to work perfectly with it, and it would be too bad if the whole package
were left out of potato when there's a working, if "inelegant", patch...
