 yes.  i _did_ advise the debian developers to consider automating the
process of rebuilding distros.  they have some rather stupid circular
_build_ dependencies which they've managed to get themselves into by
way of a) splitting the build (-dev) packages from the binary packages
b) bootstrapping themselves up over NN years ago and never doing
complete from-scratch builds, since.
