ISDN utils was removed some time ago. Please file another bug for the remaining part if you still feel it is important.

I wonder if it would be easier to repackage the bit of isdnutils that we want to use, then try and free+update the mess thats already in place?

OK, here's finally a link to my diff (using the new capi20): eval.nu/isdnutils-3.9_20060704.libcapi20.new.standalone.diff.gz

Apparently, isdnutils contains some non-free code. However, not all parts of it do, and many (all?) can be built separately. Also, libopal, required by newer versions of Ekiga, would need libcapi20, contained in isdnutils.

I have (rather clumzily, I guess) managed to build libcapi20 on its own. And, I have replaced it with a newer and backwards-compatible fork called libcapi20.new which is (more or less) actively maintained (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/isdnutils/+bug/420918). Libopal also builds against this newer version.

I am attaching a diff of my haphazard libcapi20 against isdnutils.
