* debian/control: Depends on "perl (>= 5.8) |" added as a recent enough 
version of Math::BigInt is now part of Perl 5.8. Thanks to Joey Hess
who had prepared this as part of a perl-5.8 transition (Closes: #158946)
* debian/control: ${perl:Depends} currently "parked"

math-numbercruncher (5.00-2.1) unstable; urgency=low
* NMU for perl 5.8. Math::BigInt is part of perl now, so a versioned
dependency on it will not be satisfyable (no versioned provides yet.)
