Package: electric-fence
Version: 2.0.5-4

AFAIK the upstream release of Electric Fence doesn't utilise the trick of
making it into a shared library like the current Debian package does.
Please forward this trick upstream; it is very useful not to have to relink
a binary in order to use Electric Fence. Perhaps Electric Fence could use
a tool like libtool to support building it as a shared library on platforms
that have shared libs.
