I made the upload, so I guess I should comment on this.

Yep, sorry, forgot to add that one to the changelog...

Except lintian didn't complain at all when I built it in a freshly
updated chroot. These symbols are actually conditional on the presence
of some header (regex.h) from libc6-dev, so I guess my build might have
happened in a time window when there were some multi-arch related header
Anyway, I'll fix that with a new upload today.
