 zlibc      - Uncompressing C Library
Closes: 146849 150189
 zlibc (0.9j-5) unstable; urgency=low
   * QA upload.
   * filetype.c: ps has its own _init() which gets called before ours and
     tries to use open() while zlib_real_open is still NULL, resulting in a
     segfault.  Linking with `-z initfirst' solves this, but messes up libc
     startup and causes bash to crash.  Therefore preinitialize zlib_real_*
     with wrappers that replace themselves with the real functions.  Due to
     ld.so weirdness at that stage, they can't call _init() (they'd get the
     one from ps), so move the initialization code to a static function;
     call it later from our _init() if necessary.  Yuck.  This enlarges
     uncompress.o by ~1 KB, but it's generic and fast.  Closes: #146849.
   * strsep.c: Include config.h for HAVE_STRSEP.
   * Switched to debhelper 4.
   * debian/rules:
     - Set sysconfdir to /etc, not /usr/etc.  Closes: #150189.
     - Place sln in /sbin per FHS §6.1.4.
     - Make uncompress.o setuid to allow preloading with setuid/setgid
     - Leave out DVI documentation; man, info and HTML seems like enough.
     - Since only one version of this package can be installed at a time,
       leave out versioned uncompress.o.
     - Support the `debug' build option.
     - Add Lintian overrides.
   * debian/zlibc.conf: This was just a copy of zlibc.conf.sample; removed.
   * debian/changelog: Remove obsolete Emacs local variables.
   * Removed unnecessary build dependency on autoconf.
   * Conforms to Standards version 3.5.6.
