Here you are my packaging for devuan beowulf:


pay attention to the attached libreswan.build file, and look at the
warnings and errors thrown by lintian. Most of them related with all
the content located in /usr/local. If i didn't override dh_usrlocal, i got
an error while packaging the manpages. I can replace "programs" by
"base" in mk/targets.mk, but there are more files located in /usr/local,
as you can see in the messages thrown by lintian.

You must replace "dh $@ --with systemd" by "dh $@" in debian/rules.

This is my first attempt, and hope this helps :)
