The package does build now, but I think it would be best to follow Igor's comments about lnconf.sh. The package should not unpack
files to /usr/src that do not contain the package's name and version, to guarantee that they will not conflict with other packages.

It would be useful to put note in the README, explaining why many files in the bootstrap directory have been patched. Also, I see
that "uchar" has been changed to "char" in scanner.re and files created from it - it would be good to change the examples too, if
this change is a required one.
