Cool, thanks for testing.

Good catch. A left-over from an earlier attempt at Multi-Arch-ify
simgear & flightgear. That's certainly not gonna happen for 3.4, now, so
I removed the line.

Yeah, I had those changes pending, but didn't want to commit quite yet.
What's the story behind? Do you know why that directory doesn't exist

Ugh! There's not only jquery, but sprintf, leaflet and flot. The latter
in turn includes a minified variant of jquery.colorhelpers.js.

leaflet-0.7.3 is available from Debian/unstable. However, I think we
cannot simply depend on that and symlink it (as we do for the font and
tzdata) w/o removing the minimized js files, can we?

Also note that all of this webgui directory is new and flightgear-data
wouldn't ship it at all, as it stands. I don't even know what it is, yet.

I guess it would block the auto-simgear transition, so I plan to update
it as well.
