i've just packaged and uploaded the debian build of this version, and
things look pretty good. 

as expected there are a few small debian differences (e.g. all manpages to 
go in as whatever.1mh instead of whatever.1); besides that 
there are two patches that i think might be interesting for upstream: 

1. the automatic debian build daemons and build environments are very
stripped down, without guarantees wrt. particular locales being configured.

it makes no sense to attempt the tests that only work if en_US.UTF-8 is
available, so i've made the affected tests check that and skip if

2. in my experience the fake smtpd doesn't always start up fast enough for
the subsequent send invocation, so i've adjusted that test to
wait and retry a few times if required.
