You're right. (Not an empty file through, but somehow it got truncated to
~50 K). Reinstalling fixed it.

Here's the list of what I compiled so far:

file_3.20.1-6_mips.deb              gzip_1.2.4-15_mips.deb
debmake_3.3.11_mips.deb             grep_2.0-12_mips.deb
dpkg-dev_1.4.0.8_all.deb            makedev_1.6-16_mips.deb
dpkg_1.4.0.8_mips.deb               sysklogd_1.3-17_mips.deb
dpkg_1.4.0.8_mips.nondebbin.tar.gz  update_1.3-1_mips.deb
cpio_2.4.2-11_mips.deb              tar_1.12-1_mips.deb
patch_2.2-1_mips.deb                sed_2.05-15_mips.deb
flex_2.5.4a-1_mips.deb              findutils_4.1-23_mips.deb
bison_1.25-9_mips.deb               shellutils_1.16-4_mips.deb
diff_2.7-13_mips.deb                textutils_1.22-2_mips.deb
rpm_2.4.2-2_mips.deb                pwgen_1-8_mips.deb
adduser_3.6_all.deb

These packages are available from odin.waw.com/pub/linux (the pgp signed
checksums are in the changes/ subdirectory). I'd be glad if someone could
test a few of them and tell me if everything is okay.

Quick install instructions:
untar the file dpkg_1.4.0.8_mips.nondebbin.tar.gz at the root of your FS,
then install other packages with 'dpkg -i foo.deb'.

        Cordialement,
