[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: freebsd-buildutils
Version: 7.0-1
Severity: wishlist

None of the programs that this package provides in /usr/bin have
manpages.  Since these programs don't necessarily act as the GNU
versions do, it's important to have manpages that describe how the
programs function.

 freebsd-buildutils - Utilities for building FreeBSD sources
Closes: 493841 493898 594183 602768
 freebsd-buildutils (8.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Robert Millan ]
   * 10_non_kfreebsd.diff: Make freebsd-make usable on non-kFreeBSD
     systems.  (Closes: #594183, #602768)
   [ Guillem Jover ]
   * Now using Standards-Version 3.9.2 (no changes needed).
   * Switch to source format “3.0 (quilt)”.
     - Remove quilt from Build-Depends.
     - Remove patch target in debian/rules.
     - Remove now unneeded README.source.
     - Refresh all patches.
   * Use -C option for pmake instead of manually changing dir.
   * Stop Build-Depending on pmake, bootstrap freebsd-make using GNU make
     and use it as pmake instead of using it from the pmake package.
   * Switch to debhelper compatibility level 7.
     - Use dh_prep instead of “dh_clean -k”.
   * Only use MACHINE_ARCH in freebsd-make if it's defined.
   * Add support for Multi-Arch directories to freebsd-make:
     - Do not switch LIBDIR yet, the dynamic linker does not have the
       correct paths for i386 based architectures.
     - Add builtin MACHINE_MULTIARCH make variable.
   * Refactor source and tar name into SOURCE and TARNAME in debian/rules.
   * Line-wrap CFLAGS variable in debian/rules.
   * Install binaries directly to /usr/lib/freebsd instead of relocating them
     from /usr/bin and /usr/sbin.
   * Install the man pages. (Closes: #493898)
   * Change ‘unix’ freebsd-make variable to “We run Debian, not UNIX.” and
     remove ‘.FreeBSD’ freebsd-make variable. (Closes: #493841)
   * Intersperse Depends description comments between the actual dependencies.
   * Do not install profile and libfl.a hardlinks for freebsd-lex libln.a.
