I created a bugzilla with the solution to this. Just a word change in
checkinstall. "Broken by design", and a single word change solves it? Wow.

But the worst thing about checkinstall is that its author doesn't care
and for years has only integrated patches others sent him if he did
anything at all! The code to support the *at() functions has been in
checkinstall CVS for over half a year without anything happening.
Authors that care about their software and its users act differently!

BTW, Fedora already dropped checkinstall AFAICT.

"Broken by design" not is broken for not maintenace.
