I've updated debian-gss now, and it seems to build fine.  Russ, do you
think it is ready for upload?  I was a bit uncertain whether to use
Recommends or Suggests in gss-doc for gss-man.  One could argue either
way using the Debian Policy Manual definitions.  What is decisive is
probably what happens in practice with aptitude and other package tools,
but I'm not familiar enough with them to tell.

gss (0.0.21-1) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Simon Josefsson ]
  * New upstream release.
    - Fixes double build failure (closes: #424400)
  * Move man pages from gss-doc to new package gss-man, to allow
    most of the GSS documentation to be installed at the same time
    as heimdal-dev.
