Dear Maintainer,

The configure script needs --enable-xattr in order to gain support for
filesystem Extended Attributes.

Attached is a patch which updates debian/rules to do just that.

I'm uncertain whether compiling xattr is Linux-only, perhaps this change
would cause FTBFS on other kernels, however a comment in configure
describes this option being used on IRIX, so I'm guessing it's portable.
