My suggestion is that unless you really *need* the packaged version you
shouldn't bother - it's not even the standard version of any Debian
package to start with, and you're going to have to hack it further for
Slink.  Just install in /usr/local.

Even if you do need packaging, I'd consider either something that manages
/usr/local (like opt_depot or GNU stow) or your own hand-rolled package
that has nothing to do with the Debian EGCS packages.

Can we say specialised hack?
