Hi Miguel,

a heavily shuffled, merged, rebased and cleaned up branch can be found here:

git://github.com/anbe42/nvidia-cg-toolkit.git prepare-3.1v2

History is arranged to continuously build working packages as commits
fly by and changelog was rewritten to match.

I'm going to do some upgrade tests before I push this to git.d.o

Please test if this still works as expected.

I also fixed the hardening, --as-needed, and lintian issues.

I removed the Replaces as there were no file conflicts dpkg would have
to handle. Breaks is sufficient to get rid of the old package.

Please don't drop DMUA or trailing comma on Uploaders.

If this package is fine fou you,
  dch -r && git commit && push to github somewhere && update mentors

Nvidia also offers a .deb package 'nvidia-cg-toolkit' that would
conflict with our split up package if a user would upgrade from our new
packaging to this package. (It also comes with some insanities like
/usr/lib64.) Do we want to handle this somehow?
