A little bird told me a new tarball might be in the wings, and so I
wanted to clear up an issue or three...
First of all, the ioctl patch I submitted. Is it acceptable for
inclusion? If not, any specific thing I should fix?
Second, chown. I understand why we do not want to propogate the ugly
i386 fix to PPC, but without it a glibc built against recent kernel
headers requires a recent kernel to work. That's a problem; I would
like for Debian to support the stable powerpc kernel also, which is
still 2.1.24. So is there a better solution forthcoming?
And last, is there a particular reason why the /usr/bin/ldd shell
script prints an error message if you do not have execute permissions
for the file in question? Could we either (preferably) remove this
warning, or at least add the >&2 so it gets sent to stderr? This is
necessary for the script 'dpkg-shlibdeps' which parses the output of
ldd on shared libraries, which are not required to have execute
