Good grief, Charlie Brown. That's a hell of alot of packages. The
0.30.195 i386 .deb that I did ended up being only 330k. I don't think
it's useful to split up util-vserver into this many packages on Debian,
in fact, I think it'd be a *terrible* idea. I'd say perhaps a main
util-vserver package and a -doc package. Maybe a -lib/-dev, but only if
something outside of util-vserver is expected to use the libraries/API
provided by util-vserver (do any actually exist?, is it even sane?).

ehhh, I don't think util-vserver as a package should really care about
this all that much. People can install syslog-ng and use that instead
(that's what I do). A fake/empty connection point for klogd isn't all
that bad of an idea, imv, though.

Debian default currently would be gcc 3.3, or so.
