It's a pity that fgrun was not fixed and fell out of Stretch release.

I have prepared a new release of fgrun (fgrun 2016.4.0) for Debian and 
switched upstream tracking to SourceForge. You may find my working Git repo on 
GitHub [1]. Tell me if it's okay and I may push commits onto Alioth repo

One way is to use the giant flightgear tarball (1.5GB large) which seems to 
have bundled fgrun code. Not really an elegant approach.

Another way is generating src tarball from Git repository. In my current 
working repo I merged Debian packaging history with upstream commits. Current 
tarball inside pristine-tar branch is simply generated by::

    git checkout upstream/2016.4.0
    cd ..
    tar --exclude-vcs -cJvf fgrun_2016.4.0.orig.tar.xz fgrun

Hacky but it works.
