As I posted, the problem is NOT in the boinc-app-seti package at all.

The start-stop-daemon for boinc (boinc-client) was producing a pid file 
containing a different pid number than the actual boinc pid! This would cause 
the distribution /etc/init.d/boinc_client fails to stop the boinc and this 
causes all the installation problems for seti.

I changed that script to simply NOT test the pid number but killall boinc if 
any such pid file exists. Boinc-app-seti will now install.

This but, degraded as appropriate belong to either boinc (boinc_client) or
