The current acl 2.2.47 release has a quite nasty bug about following
symlinks, which is already fixes in the current ptools/cvs/git tree:

        http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=499076
        http://oss.sgi.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=790

Any chance we can put out a 2.2.48 release with that fix so that the
broken version doesn't end up in distros?

The oss bugzilla also has another patch that needs reviewing.

AFAICS the same problems symlink walking code is also used in attr,
so it could use an update, too.
