dibbler 0.8.1

Can’t believe its almost 7 years since my first sponsored upload of Dibbler to Debian archive. I did it cause upstream promised to maintain it and fix any bugs submitted by Debian users. Unfortunately after 3-4 years he stopped to do it. Well since I was the sponsor of it, then I should feel responsible for these packages after him. It’s quite hard to do it, cause I’m not using these packages at all ;)

Anyway, I finally found some time and reviewed them. It wasn’t easy cause in the meantime whole build process totally changed.

To whom it may concern: Dibbler is an IPv6 DHCP client, relay and server.

I’ve just uploaded the newest upstream version.
