I second that. It should be stored there, but... can it be scraped
from there somehow to keep the README's up-to-date? I'm thinking of
the poor sap with 28k dialup trying to build it and not having easy
access to that list while building. (I know a lot of Debian users work
off the install CD's (there's like 20+ of them) and wanting to build
when *not* on line). It's a pretty small set of people, I'm sure, but
if it could be done with relative ease, why not?
