I don't know how this one got out of testing, but it appears the only change from the prepackaged binary tarball was the addition of user.tar.gz. All the rest of the files are still included in the UCI:

The UCI has:

-rw-rw-r--    1 dsl      staff         167 Jan 11  2006 user.tar.gz

The tarball from the developer has the same files except user.tar.gz.

While it should work as-is, it has a lot of stuff included that shouldn't be there:
16K     ./man/de
16K     ./man/fr
16K     ./man/it
16K     ./man/nl
16K     ./man/ru_RU.KOI8-R
96K     ./man
184K    ./po

Not to mention that install script. Also, I copied and moved with -rp as root and it's all dsl:straff so it looks like there's a permissions issue as well. I don't know if the original submitter is still active, but I'll either fix and resubmit this version or submit the current version.
