yeah, this is definitely a bad idea.  i think this particular line
predates our management of the package, which is probably how it
slipped under our radar. =20

i'm cc'ing debian-release on this one... coming up with a fix for this
shouldn't be too complicated or take too long and i can probably get it
done very late this evening (EDT).  is this too late for sarge?  if so,
i'll put the update in for the first sarge update.
