cd-hit contains a number of programs designed to quickly group
sequences. cd-hit groups proteins into clusters that meet a user-defined
similarity threshold. cd-hit-est is similar to cd-hit, but designed to
group nucleotide sequences (without introns). cd-hit-est-2d is similar
to cd-hit-2d but designed to compare two nucleotide datasets. A number
of other related programs are also in this package. Please see the
cd-hit user manual, also part of this package, for further information.

* Rebuild for Precice
* Add new cdhit-454 to /usr/bin, including help2man manpage
* Remove dependency on openmpi, as cd-hit doesn't use it at all.
(It uses the -fopenmp compiler flag; maybe there was some confusion?)

well as the LaTeX source of the documentation

flags will really propagate

* README.Debian: Tell users that we are using mpi and they should
ask for an alternative if needed
* debian/*.1, debian/manpages: Deleted in favour of autogenerated
manpages using help2man; Remark: the manually edited pages were
slightly better regarding "SEE ALSO" and "AUTHORS" sections but
it is better to auto-generate the pages to stay with changes of
future versions
* debian/rules: Use help2man 2 create manpages whereever possible
* debian/patches/enable_help2man.patch: Fix some minor issues to
get less error output in man pages
