Hi Guido/Philipp,

I have prepared the new iscsitarget release and will soon push the change to 
the git repo. Currently I am seeing two lintian problems (listed below).

The man page warning could be ignored for now, but what about openssl linkage 
error ?

W: iscsitarget: manpage-has-errors-from-man usr/share/man/man5/ietd.conf.5.gz 
130: warning [p 2, 7.7i, div `an-div', 0.2i]: can't break line

E: iscsitarget: possible-gpl-code-linked-with-openssl

The iscsitarget package has a dependency on libssl-dev. I tried using gnutls 
but the build failed as it couldn't find the sha.h and md5.h header files.

cc -Wall -g -O2 -O2 -fno-inline -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -g -I../include -
D_GNU_SOURCE    -c -o chap.o chap.c
chap.c:20:25: error: openssl/sha.h: No such file or directory
chap.c:21:25: error: openssl/md5.h: No such file or directory

The package has been in the Debian archive with this openssl anomaly for a 
while. Should it be okay to ignore this lintian error ?
