I am very likely to have messed up the packaging!  I don't remember the 
sequence of events but most likely either I wasn't aware of the maemo-hackers 
version or I had to create a separate version to keep MUD happy (I am keen to 
get GPE into MUD so that it is easily and quickly buildable for new OS 

I don't think there is any particular reason why it is built from the latest 
SVN (except that that was what I was doing for GPE).  I think I dropped tls 
because I didn't need it for my original purpose and it made life simpler.

Shall we just switch to building the debian package (libsoup2.2-8 in lenny?). 
Does anyone know if there are any changes required to do this?
