Debian project has modified their sources and the problem is fixed in wheezy. I'll "port" those modifications and switch our package to quilt in next few days.

Unanimous agreement on your assessment, so I've forwarded the bug to debian.

Thanks for the report. I'm going to ask on the gnu-linux-libre list about this problem.

In both bacula_5.0.2.orig.tar.gz/bacula_5.0.2.orig.tar/bacula-5.0.2/ src/lib/sha1.h and in bacula_2.4.4.orig.tar.gz/bacula_2.4.4.orig.tar/ bacula-2.4.4/src/lib/sha1.h it mentions that the file cannot be modified.

Also, the file sha1.c has no licensing information itself, referring back to sha1.h so I assume that the restriction of not being able to modify it also applies to sha1.c as well.
