Package: rkhunter
Version: 1.4.2-0.2
Severity: normal

rkhunter sends the following email once a day:

  From: root <root at hostname>
  To: root at hostname
  Subject: [rkhunter] hostname - Daily report
  Invalid RTKT_FILE_WHITELIST configuration option: Non-existent pathname:

I intend to prepare a fix for this after 1.4.2-0.2 makes it to testing,
and then ask the trivial fix (commenting out a few lines) to be considered
for a freeze exception in jessie.
