	Apologies. I was not on my machine and I was using GMail's
*insert expletive* web interface.

	Done all that. The debs build fine provided that I manually
extract the files from the installer and add a symlink to
arch/x86_64/usr/X11R6/lib64/libfglrx_gamma.so.1.0 called
libfglrx_gamma.so.1. Still, when I ran
# m-a build fglrx
it bombed out at compilation time.

	I would actually be more than happy to get my hands on the
1:8-7-3 version of the official debs, but they are nowhere to be found.
At some point they must have been on snapshot.debian.net, since I have
found trace of someone downloading them in forums, but they have
disappeared now.

	Anyway, thanks again for the help.
