I found I'd missed updating the files to be installed. I've now updated 
that too and made some other (mostly minor) improvements.

The new list is:
- osasnmpd (was already disabled)
- vmur (was enabled, but files were not included in the deb)
- cpuplugd (daemon, so would require some work)
- ip_watcher
- ziomon

So I've disabled ip_watcher.

There were several executables that were built in the previous version, but 
not included in the deb: chchp, lschp, tape390_crypt, vmconvert.

I guess the main reason to exclude things is because either:
- they are not useful on Debian systems
- using them would conflict with the Debian way of configuring devices
  (using sysconfig-hardware)

That the basis on which I've excluded ip_watcher and also the following 
additional executables: chzcrypt, lszcrypt, mon_fsstatd, mon_procd.

However, as my s390 experience is limited to the Hercules emulator it's 
quite possible that I've been too conservative. Convincing me that 
something should be included should be fairly easy ;-)

That should have been (requires SSH access to alioth):
   git clone alioth.debian.org:~fjp/git/s390-tools.git
I'm not 100% if that works for others than me, but it's updated with my 
latest changes.

That's unchanged :-)

Already done in current version.
