Package mcstrans update



I would like to get version 0.2.11-2 of mcstrans in Lenny.

It changes to use libcap2, while this is a trivial change it also prevents the 
2.6.25 kernel logging warning messages (which we don't want to have happening 
all through Lenny).

It allows correct restarting.  While there is no bug report for this (I 
noticed it myself) it is quite an important bug.  If a change to the running 
state of the program required restarting the daemon a sys-admin might not 
realise that two copies of the daemon ended up running.  As the daemon is 
related to security there is even a slight possibility that this could cause 
a security problem (the possibility is small - but we really don't want 
that).

The new version also removes a needless -lpthread when building.  While the 
policy is that extra changes don't get in, I hope that removing a single 
linker flag could be an exception from that rule.
