Bug Description

Binary package hint: ucspi-unix

This breaks bcron and any other software that relies on SO_PEERCRED.

I have not investigated this exhaustively. This is a tentative diagnosis based on playing around with bcron and trying to compile ucpsi-unix from source (had trouble enabling SO_PEERCRED).

I couldn't find where HASPEERCRED is defined so I removed the ifdefs. SO_PEERCRED is available via sys/socket.h. Maybe including this header is a new requirement compared to debian or previous ubuntu versions?

This still isn't fixed in quantal. Can somebody nudge the maintainer?
