It's not lintian clean, these are 2 warnings, one about a spelling
error, another one about the non-executability of a script, that can
be ignored.

I tested the package by installing and running it in two chroot
environments, Debian sid and Ubuntu karmic, both for amd64
architecture: it seems working good.
