Output from type-handling.  There's no reason why lintian should treat them
as errors.

Yes.  These are *not* configure-generated files, and the ones indicated
above aren't even part of the diff.gz.  I have given some thought to whether
these are still needed; they were originally added to ensure the samba
binaries would work on the earliest supported kernel at the time, but
probably don't apply anymore now that 2.4 is the minimum.  Anyway, the
lintian warning is still wrong.

The lintian check looks for any text file beginning with #!.  But not all
files that begin with #! should be executable scripts; this is a file that
should not be executable, and there's nothing wrong with having the
#!/usr/bin/python line in it, so the warning should just be ignored.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
