Did you try using stable/testing or unstable?  In other words, with 
which version of the Sympa package is above experience og yours?

I am pretty certain that sympa in Lenny and Squeeze works only with 
MySQL (if with that at all).

I do not volunteer to try hack on that old code.  I would recommend 
putting work into shaping up the major packaging rewrite in Sid.

Yeah, I am aware of that, but thanks for reminding anyway.  Lintian also 
has a bunch of relevant hints.

Help shaping up sympa is much appreciated!
