Yes, Debian used my, and later rewrote it in python, apparently,
but I never chcked if they retained all the functionality (esp if it
supports circular library dependencies).

My script was never perfect.  It never fully supported C++ apps, and it
needed regular maintenance to get the glibc linking command right.  But it
is still there to get the idea how this is done.  As I am not doing boot
disks for some years now, I didn't maintain it anymore, but it still exists.

As for the release directory.  The announcements are for interesting from a
historical point of view, and somebits here and there are of interest to my,
but I just made my private copy of it, and it is still in the CVS repository
of course, so I guess we can scrap that.
