Package: dcmtk-www
Version: 3.6.0-15+b1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
     There is /etc/apache2/conf-available/dcmtk, but
     it seems that it is not recognized by a2enconf.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     1. Install dcmtk-www
        sudo apt-get install dcmtk dcmtk-www
     2. Enable dcmtk by a2enconf
        sudo a2enconf dcmtk

   * What was the outcome of this action?
     % sudo a2enconf dcmtk
     ERROR: Conf dcmtk does not exist!

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
     % sudo a2enconf dcmtk
     Enabling conf dcmtk.
     To activate the new configuration, you need to run:
       service apache2 reload

It seems that the problem is derived from symlink of apache.conf.

  % ls -la /etc/apache2/conf-available/dcmtk
  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23  3月  4 12:41 /etc/apache2/conf-available/dcmtk ->
.../../dcmtk/apache.conf (This point to /etc/dcmtk/apache.conf)

But, it must be /etc/apache2/conf-available/dcmtk.conf, not dcmtk.

  % ls -1 /etc/apache2/conf-available

After linking properly (use dcmtk.conf instead), a2enconf accepts it.

  % sudo a2enconf dcmtk
  Enabling conf dcmtk.
  To activate the new configuration, you need to run:
    service apache2 reload

This bug affects not only dcmtk_3.6.0-15.dsc, but also dcmtk_3.6.1~20140617-3.

Here is the patch that it may fix this issue.
