Stripping some parts for -release, keeping what matters:

Here is my findings about etch/lenny packages WRT the 6 removed symbols
(looking at main).

Packages both in etch and in lenny:
libprintsys/etch:   OK (basic symbols)
libprintsys/lenny:  OK (basic symbols)
pconf-detect/etch:  OK (linked in, no symbols)
pconf-detect/lenny: OK (linked in, no symbols)

Packages only in lenny:
fdm/lenny:        OK (only a few symbols)
python-tdb/lenny: OK (lots of symbols, built from the same source)

Packages only in etch:
adept-installer/etch:    OK (linked in, no symbols)
adept-manager/etch:      OK (linked in, no symbols)
adept-notifier/etch:     OK (linked in, no symbols)
adept-updater/etch:      OK (linked in, no symbols)
libprinterconf0c2a/etch: OK (linked in, no symbols)
tagcolledit/etch:        OK (linked in, no symbols)
tdb-tools/etch:          OK (lots of symbols)

Note that it still can break locally-built packages or pieces of
software. I think you could consider downgrading the severity, or
tagging it lenny-ignore since there seem to be no collateral damages
within Debian.

That said, I guess a t-p-u upload to fix #510886 and a binNMU of fdm
will do the job (I didn't check yet it needs a >= on the lenny version,
but I guess it'd be a a nice-to-have anyway).
