Changes: 
 dpkg (1.16.2~multiarch) experimental; urgency=low
 .
   [ Cyril Brulebois ]
   * Non-maintainer upload. Let's push multiarch to the masses.
 .
   [ Guillem Jover ]
   * Move  and  to the top of trigdeferred.l to
properly
     use the configured features and compat code.
   * Honour --disable-nls when the system lacks obstack support, by
updating
     the obstack compat module from gnulib.
   * Link the libdpkg unit tests with libcompat and libintl, so that
systems
     needing them will compile correctly.
   * Check for the presence of the strnlen declaration and correctly
provide
     the compat one in case the systems lacks it.
   * Do not assume existence of paths on the build system in the test
suite.
   * Do not fail to link dselect on MacOS X when using --disable-nls.
   * Remove versioned coreutils Pre-Depends from dpkg due to the ancient
     md5sum transition. Reported by Bill Allombert .
     Closes: #643746
   * Change dpkg-architecture to only compute the requested variables.
This:
     - Fixes the bootstrapping problem, as the dpkg build system only needs
       the host architecture, for which dpkg itself is not required.
     - Reduces the amount of work performed, including loading and parsing
       unnecessary table files or calling either of gcc or dpkg programs.
   * Improve error message in dpkg-gencontrol and dpkg-gensymbols when
     debian/control does not have any package stanza. Closes: #642473
     Based on a patch by Kyle Willmon .
   * Add Pre-Depends on tar >= 1.23 (satisfied in stable) to dpkg due to it
     using the ‘--warning=no-timestamp’ option. Closes: #642802
   * Do not segfault on GNU/Linux when dpkg cannot retrieve the block size
     for the filesystem containing the info database. LP: #872734
   * Fix two memory leaks per tar entry in the tar extractor used on
unpack.
   * Mark dpkg and dselect as Multi-Arch foreign.
     Reported by Steve Langasek .
   * Mark dpkg-dev and libdpkg-perl as Multi-Arch foreign. Closes: #648217
     Thanks to Colin Watson .
   * Add new deb-origin.5 man page. Closes: #608884
     Thanks to Matt Kraai .
   * Return correct status on start-stop-daemon --status when using
--pidfile.
   * Treat dpkg-deb compression level independently for each backend. This
     has the effect of changing the current behaviour for level 0 on all
     compressors except gzip.
   * Add new dpkg-deb -S option to specify the compression strategy. The
only
     currently supported value is “extreme” for xz. Closes: #647915
   * Stop using brace expansion to install man pages by using dh_installman
     instead of dh_install, the former does not abort on empty glob
expansion.
   * Do not use absolute paths for programs in perl and shell code.
   * Add missing ‘*’ in asprintf() and vasprintf() compat declarations.
   * Add support for virtual output binary:Summary and db:Status-Abbrev
fields.
     Closes: #192619, #427945
   * Add support for virtual output source:Package and source:Version
fields.
     Closes: #653575
   * Use a different temporary file per process on libcompat's vsnprintf()
     function to avoid race conditions from children after fork(3).
     Reported by Daniel Ruoso . Closes: #655411
   * Fix start-stop-daemon --exec and --name options on FreeBSD, NetBSD and
     OpenBSD by swapping the process matching implementations.
   * Fix start-stop-daemon --name option on GNU/Hurd to match the process
name.
   * Document in more detail the implications of start-stop-daemon matching
     options. Closes: #367608
   * Improve and clarify dpkg-shlibdeps superfluous linking warning
messages.
     Based on a patch by Peter Eisentraut . Closes:
#656496
 .
   [ Raphaël Hertzog ]
   * Update Dpkg::Shlibs to look into multiarch paths when cross-building
     too. Closes: #595144
   * Rewrite architecture.mk with explicit loops instead of duplicating
many
     similar lines. Based on a patch by Thorsten Glaser .
   * Modify dpkg-gencontrol and dpkg-distaddfile to grab a write lock
     on debian/control before updating debian/files to avoid simultaneous
     updates. Closes: #642608
     Add libfile-fcntllock-perl to dpkg-dev's Depends since we use this
module
     to handle the locking.
   * Update dpkg-gensymbols(1) to clarify that -e accepts shell patterns
     expansions and not regular expressions. And let dpkg-gensymbols output
a
     warning when a pattern doesn't match any file. Closes: #
