  * Cherry pick two changes from Debian to fix FTBFS (LP: #1213278):
    [ Axel Beckert ]
    - Update debian/patches/13split_info_files.(d)patch to change now ambiguous
      makeinfo option --split to --split-size. Fixes FTBFS with texinfo 5.x.
    - Use doc/screen.info* instead of listing every file indiviually in
      debian/info.

  * Build-Conflict against libelf-dev on non-linux (Closes: #684386)
  * Allow /dev/console to be a symlink. (Closes: #701173) Thanks to Igor
    Pashev for the report and patch.

    (Closes: #680360)
  * Add a package with debugging symbols (Closes: #715170)
  * Ensure that the title prompt can only appear once. (Closes: #625866)

    information. (Closes: #717553)

    type names when using the "term" command interactively from inside
    screen or from .screenrc. (Closes: #491812)

    - debian/preinst: Remove obsolete init script 'screen' on
      upgrades. The script is called 'screen-cleanup' in Debian and thus
      should be called the same in Ubuntu to avoid a permanent and pointless
      delta. This needs to be kept until after the next LTS.
