Thanks for that.  Unfortunately, although the package is on the buildd's
non-free whitelist, it is not currently being auto-built.  This is due
to the second component necessary for this to occur being missing,
namely the declaration in the source package that we are able to build
it using the buildd infrastructure.

Please see
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2006/11/msg00012.html for
further (mostly still relevant) details and make a new upload with the
required change; in order to ensure that the package makes in to squeeze
before the release, an urgency other than "low" would be appropriate.
