Bug Description

xterm now build-depends on libutempter-dev, and hasn't built since January as a result of the dep-wait. So we need libutempter promoted to main.

http://bugs.debian.org/566113 looks like it'd break libutempter completely, and http://bugs.debian.org/573015 is an easy fix to make it more policy compliant.

Bryce, is this an optional build dependency? This is a fairly new package, and we might postpone it until 10.10?

OK, I think it's better to revert that change and keep the structure that we have in lucid.

  * Refresh patches 902 and 904.
  * Add build dependency on xorg-docs-core to fix the reference to X(7) in

  * Rename the build directory to not include DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE for no
    good reason. Thanks, Colin Watson!
