Thanks for the idea.  I have checked RedHat sources and discovered one
difference between patches: bash uses termcap under redhat but should use
ncurses under debian.

Is there a list of such patches ?
Also, when a package needs a patch, we must send patches to real maintainer,
but do we wait the updated sources reach the ftp site before uploading the
sparc binary ?
In fact, I don't know wether I can release a binary package that is not in
sync w/ its sources.
