r308: * dh_suidregister: Die with understandable error message if asked to
act on files that don't exist. * dh_installchangelogs: to comply with policy, if it's told to act on a html changelog, it installs it as changelog.html.gz and dumps a plain text version to changelog.gz. The dumping is done with lynx. (Closes: #51099) * Modified it so any options specified after -- are added to U_PARAMS. This means that instead of passing '-u"something nasty"' to dh_gencontrol and the like, you can pass '-- something nasty' without fiddling to get the quoting right, etc.

merge these modifications into the actual postinst scripts.
+Debhelper programs should default to doing exactly what policy says to do.
There are always exceptions. Just ask me.
