Will do.

Everything looks fairly good.  The one thing that I did run into, though,
is that currently the xml-security-c sets its SONAME to, not just as is
conventional.  This seems wrong to me -- usually the second digit is for
changes that don't affect the ABI, and looking at the configure script, it
seems to be coming from the patch level of the release, which shouldn't
result in ABI changes.

I'm planning on applying the following patch for Debian, but would
recommend that this change be made for all systems in the

Also, config.guess and config.sub are very old, too old to support some
Debian architectures.  Could you update them to the latest versions from before the next release?  It would save me a step in building
