Bug#323064: kdenetwork-filesharing needs to depend on 'perl-suid'

Package: kdenetwork-filesharing
Version: 4:3.4.0-0pre1
Severity: important

kdenetwork-filesharing makes use of /usr/bin/fileshareset and
/usr/bin/filesharelist, which are setuid perl scripts. These two scripts
are included in kdelibs-bin. Without the package 'perl-suid' on cannot
use these 2 scripts, hence one cannot use KDE's filesharing features.

kdelibs-bin is does only recommend perl-suid. Therefore, perl-suid will
not be installed, when kdenetwork-filesharing is installed. The user
gets some wierd error messages ("make sure if the fileshareset script
ist really setuid" or something similiar) but does not know what to do.

a) make kdenetwork-filesharing depend on the perl-suid (also you might
then be able to remove the "recommend" from kdelibs-bin)
b) make kdelibs-bin depend on perl-suid instead of only recommending it

Don't know which one is better. Anyway, without perl-suid the package
kdenetwork-filesharing is not usable, therefore there must be some kind
of dependance on perl-suid.

Keep up the good work :)
