+ fix compiler warnings:
- fdisk.c: passing … from incompatible pointer type
- lib/scheme/icside.c: dereferencing … does break strict-aliasing rules
XXX there might be an endianness issue left from the original code
- lib/scheme/pcbios.c: array subscript is above array bounds
- lib/scheme/pcbios.c: use of uninitialised value
+ fix lintian warnings:
- debhelper-but-no-misc-depends
- debian-rules-ignores-make-clean-error
- spelling-error-in-binary
- unknown-section base
- package-contains-empty-directory

package and, while not promising, might take it over. Not now.)
* Add debian/source/format (preferring 1.0 at the moment)
* Port this to GNU/kFreeBSD (some ideas from util-linux, 10x)
* Disable building on GNU/Hurd until we have a way to port it

* Support short options in addition to GNU --long-options
* Honour dpkg CFLAGS during build
* debian/dirs: remove, not needed
