recent util-vserver packages from
fail to build on debian lenny systems.

2 Problems:
1) dependencies:
python2.6-dev: not available in lenny, how about python-dev?
diffutils: not available in lenny, i replaced it with diffutils|diff

2) in rules it makes use of override_* targets which seem to be
supported only in newer debhelper packages. The Changelog mentions this
feature the first time for 7.0.50, lenny comes with 7.0.17 which ignore
these targets completely and you end up with rather empty packages.
Building with debhelper 8.0.0 from backports works fine, so I suggest
adjusting the debhelper (>=7) in control to something more specific.

With these changes i can build working packages on lenny.
