Fair call, as I mentioned diehard djbdns users who want to use this package
should be able to deal with it. :-D (if they can't - how would they have
gotten it running in the first place? ;-P)

Looks fine.

I've noticed that while the license is GPL (per the debian/
copyright blurb and License tag in the spec) the commonly found COPYING file
containing the GPLv2 text is missing in the tarball (and thus %doc.)

Not a problem (I'm not personally zealous about these things, but there are
some whose opinions differ) but it might be worth mentioning to Michael at
some stage for completeness.

Approved - I'll send the notice to f-e-commits.
