r303: * Added build dependancies to this package. That was easy; it just uses
perl5 for regression testing, the rest of its build-deps are things in base. * dh_version.1: Added note that this program is quickly becoming obsolete. * doc/README, doc/from-debstd: Added reminders that if you use debhelper, you need to add debhelper to your Build-Depends line.

Other notes:
-----------
-Note that if you are generating a debian package that has arch-indep and
-arch-dependent portions, and you are using dh_movefiles to move the
-arch-indep files out of debian/tmp, you need to make sure that dh_movefiles
-does this even if only the arch-dependent package is being built (for ports
-to other architectures). I handle this in debian/rules.multi by calling
-dh_movefiles in the install target.
