r407: * suidmanager is obsolete now, and so is dh_suidmanager. Instead,
packages that contain suid binaries should include the binaries suid in the .deb, and dpkg-statoverride can override this. If this is done to a program that previously used suidmanager, though, you need to conflict with suidmanager (<< 0.50). * Made dh_suidmanager check to see if it would have done anything before. If so, it states that it is obsolete, and refer users to the man page, which now explains the situation, and then aborts the build. If it would have done nothing before, it just outputs a warning that it is an obsolete program.
