Tried to rebuild that package from source but failed. Had to go back to 1.5.3,
but soon dfiscovered that dh_make handles glusterfs very well (just add
./autogen.sh and ./configure ... to the configure: target, and dpkg-buildpackage)

The hard job is to split that one into client and server (which doesn't seem
necessary to me), and set the proper (build) dependencies (since I don't have IB,
I don't link it in...)

I'll build some config files over the weekend, and do some testing next week.
(Have to find out what's the proper dependency between the translators, i.e.
which one to stack on top of the other... going to read the examples...)
