thanks for the review. I used a reportbug, but it
did not send a mail to submit@b.d.o. Will repeat the

ht contained a vulnerable embedded copy of libiberty. I stripped it
out and built ht against fixed libiberty, which is now statically linked
against ht.

So, for the proper fixing of all CVEs in Jessie and potentially in Wheezy
one need to backport the newest libiberty and then upload the stripped
version of ht.

libiberty (20161017-1~deb8u1) will that work?

Ok, I will revert it.

I filtered it because the full diff is over 40k lines, which is unreadable.
To fix those CVEs we need to backport the complete new version.
