Bug#682830: xml-security-c packages are missing binary utilties

Package: xml-security-c
Severity: wishlist


It would be useful to have the binaries generated by building
xml-security-c included in a package.  We use templatesign to
sign metadata information, for example.  The binaries are not
included because usr/bin is not included in either .install

One way to address this would be to add the following to the
control file (apologies I didn't bother making a patch):

Package: xml-security-c-bin
Section: utils
Architecture: any
Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, ${misc:Depends}
Description: C++ library for XML Digital Signatures (development)
 XML-Security-C is a library for the XML Digital Security specification.
 It provides processing and handling of XML Key Management Specifications
 (XKMS) messages.
 This package contains the XML-Security-C utility binaries.

And to add debian/xml-security-c-bin.install containing:
