I figured this, but had to try, in case the bugfix wasn't lowlevel. :)

I'm on it! I have packages built, that fail at the testsuite. As soon as
you upload 2.99.6, I'll try again with that.

Interesting. My random bet is radius and tar!

Thanks, again, for the texinfo docs license change. 3.0 in Debian will
again have a info manual, even if its defective. :)

I've had a few problems trying to make dist from current git, so I'd be
glad if I could use an official tarball. Once I have something built and
uploaded to experimental, it'll get compiled in a gazillion architectures
(for values of gazillion near to 14) and we'll be able to find out how the
new release is doing in more exotic environments.
