Actually, I'm not at all talking about that particular procedure - I pretty
clearly outlined the procedure I was talking about already, so no need to
repeat myself.

But, perhaps, the following procedure is better for you. Change 0.6.34,

As you well know (or should by your usage of devscripts), the configure
switches are available for your editing in debian/rules. What does this
have to do with excitement, anyway? In general, isn't boring good on
production servers?

Ah well, it really doesn't matter. We've established that you think by-hand
building and copying over of binaries without keeping up with the
distrobution's audit trail is much more exciting, customizable, and faster
than using the distrobution's tools which I happen to think is just as fast,
easier to manage, and certainly boring -- I just like boring.

If I post in this thread again, I'll bring a makefile, maybe (then I can
actually contribute something!)... until then, carry on, good Sirs!
