[Pkg-mc-devel] [Fwd: Re: memory leak with quick view]

During compilation of debian package there were some problems with
file called mc.menu.sr, maybe that's related.

I had to copy the file "in realtime" to the proper place into dir
`debian/tmp/.../usr/mc` during compilation. Only then the
`debian/rules binary` wouldn't crash during *.deb generation.

I used the debian packaging scripts from squeeze.

best regards
