errors I'm getting with a current lintian from unstalbe are:

E: xfonts-dosemu: old-fsf-address-in-copyright-file
W: dosemu: possible-bashism-in-maintainer-script preinst:23 '[ -f /var/lib/dosemu/hdimage -a '
W: dosemu: possible-bashism-in-maintainer-script preinst:28 '[ -L /etc/dosemu/conf -a '
W: dosemu: possible-bashism-in-maintainer-script preinst:35 '[ -L /etc/dosemu/conf -a '
E: dosemu: old-fsf-address-in-copyright-file
