Bug#692929: ncpfs - ncpmount is suid root

Package: ncpfs
Severity: serious

ncpmount is suid root. A quick check through last patches for security
problems and the code itself don't make me believe this is save.

The code uses weird checks including calls to clone(2). As ncp is
mostly dead this is unlikely to change.

I think it is best to remove the suid flag for now and if noone wants to
do anything about it drop the package.
