arj (3.10.22-11) unstable; urgency=low
* Now using Standards-Version 3.9.4 (no changes needed).
* Set the static const intergrity_identifier variable as volatile instead
of building the file with -O0 to avoid the compiler optimizing it away,
so that we can use standard flags everywhere.
* Fix clean target by checking existence of GNUmakefile instead of Makefile.
* Fix build failure on GNU/Hurd, by handling unimplemented fcntl(F_GETLK).
* Fix upstream build system to honour CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS.
* Fix format security errors.
* Switch to use dpkg-buildflags to set CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS and LDFLAGS,
thus enabling hardening flags. (Closes: #673479)
* Support nostrip build option, by changing the upstrem build system to
optionally strip the binaries after the linking stage and before their
preprocessing. (Closes: #436473)
2011-02-28 - Guillem Jover <>
arj (3.10.22-10) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix build failure on GNU/Hurd due to missing -ldl, by adding “gnu*” to
the configure case handling libdl linking.
2010-07-26 - Guillem Jover <>
arj (3.10.22-9) unstable; urgency=low
* Use a safe strcpy for overlapping strings, among others fixes a build
problem with a mangled generated .c file by msgbind (thus FTBFS), and
CRC errors at run-time. (Closes: #590354)
* Now using Standards-Version 3.9.1 (no changes needed).
2009-12-02 - Guillem Jover <>
arj (3.10.22-8) unstable; urgency=low
* Switch to source format “3.0 (quilt)”:
- Remove quilt from Build-Depends.
- Remove quilt.make include from debian/rules.
- Remove patch and unpatch targets from debian/rules.
- Remove now unneeded debian/README.source.
2009-09-13 - Guillem Jover <>
arj (3.10.22-7) unstable; urgency=low
* Switch to debhelper compatibility level 7.
* Use dh_prep instead of “dh_clean -k”.
* Use $(filter ...) instead of $(findstring ...) to extract space separated
options from DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS in debian/rules.
* Now using Standards-Version 3.8.3 (no changes needed).
* Detect and conditionally use system strnlen function. This fixes build
failures when the system has eglibc 2.10. (Closes: #546475)
* Add misc:Depends substvar to arj Depends.
* Update config.guess and config.sub before running configure and remove
them on clean to avoid shipping them on the diff.
* Build-Depend on autotools-dev to guarantee up to date config.guess and
config.sub files.
2008-06-22 - Guillem Jover <>
arj (3.10.22-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Update packaging Vcs fields to the new URL.

* Refresh patches with -pab.
* Add a debian/README.source file.
* Now using Standards-Version 3.8.0.
