I don't have problem taking responsability of a debian package because
of a license violation, but I can't send it to Debian's official archive
untill this is solved. I'm afraid i don't have time to port it to gnutls,

When building the package, maintainance tools differ the upstream tarball
with the actual tree but fail because the tree after ./ contains
simlinks which diff rejects.

The clean target is run before differing to avoid this, but the simlinks
and misc stuff generated by isn't cleaned because clean
rules are not meant to clean that kind of files.
