Subject: libbsd-dev: please fix /usr/include/libutil.h situation
Date: Thu, 08 Sep 2011 10:18:15 +0000
Package: libbsd-dev
Version: 0.3.0-1
Severity: normal

/usr/include/libutil.h:33:2: warning: #warning "Deprecated header, use <bsd/libutil.h> or libbsd-overlay.pc instead."

Besides from my opinion on the overlay, this warning is
very counter-productive: programmes use <libutil.h> if
it exists, so please either do not install it at all or
remove that warning from it. (It also breaks -Werror
builds for *random* software that just happens to pick
up that header.)
