    Package        : exuberant-ctags
    Problem type   : recompile of sparc package
    Debian-specific: yes
    
    The updated exuberant-ctags that was mentioned in DSA-046-1 was
    unfortunately compiled incorrectly: the stable chroot we used
    turned out to be running unstable instead.
    
    A new package with version 1:3.2.4-0.1.1 has been made that is
    correctly compiled.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
