      Added Debian CVS build scripts. To build a snapshot Debian release, · 9b26da82

      simply run, from within the top level of the gtk+ directory:
      
      [ben@gilgamesh:~/src/gtk-snap/gtk+]% debian/build                        1:16PM
      
      This will build a Debian snapshot release, updating debian/changelog, and
      place the resultant .debs in .. (~/src/gtk-snap/ in this example).
      The version numbers are automatically updated, and look like:
      
      YYYYMMDD.XX
      
      where YYYY is the four-digit year (Y10K problem!) and MM is the
      month (01-12) and DD is the day (01-31). XX is the build number;
      it starts at 01 and debian/build increments it if you build from
      CVS more than once in a day. If you're doing more than 99 CVS
      builds in one day you need your head checked.
      
      *NOTE*! The debian/build script I've written does not check in the
      changes it has made to debian/changelog; that'd be scary and probably
      generate too many log files all the time.
      
      This really doesn't matter *too* much, since debian/changelog is
      kind of irrelevant with CVS builds. Just know that the scant
      information that is in there will not be updated via CVS.
      
      Also, for obvious reasons, the debian/build script I've written
      disables PGP signing of the resultant .changes and .dsc file.
      Since these packages are not going into any archives, this will
      not be a problem.
      
      Of course, all this doesn't mean much to you if you don't have the
      Debian dpkg-dev tools and debhelper installed, so don't worry if
      you have no idea what I'm talking about. :)
