This would break non Debian systems. We could check for nc.openbsd first
and then fall back to nc though (which would mean fixing up
Autodetect-if-the-remote-nc-command-supports-the-q-o.patch) but in that
case it's probably easier to drop the dependency altogether (which is
what upstream plans to do).

Applied, thanks. I'll leave the bug open though since improving the
error message is still a good idea.
