I think so. I haven't actually checked the resulting RiscPkg files
but I remember from the what I saw from the sources that it takes
some descriptions and stuff from the Debian packages. So even
though they otherwise are nearly identical (the previous version
had a few bugfixes merged in which weren't in the original 0.7.7 I
think), I think it is better to use the Debian package.

The reason I use a URL at all is that 0.7.8 is not yet available
from Debian testing (squeeze?) so the new patch wouldn.t work on
0.7.7. When the patch was provided, merely a few hours after
release, 0.7.8 was not yet on Debian unstable (sid?) either.

When I notice it arrives on squeeze I'll remove the AB_URL again.
