because tpowa uploaded a broken -1 and i only fixed it.
-1 had no versioned provider for util-linux-ng and an update wasn't
possible, it had a missing .install. all of them fixed in -2.
after that i noticed that ipc info file is not generate and the .install
command was failing because of that. the ipc doc file was dropped by
upstream. this was fixed in -3.

That change was already committed by tpowa in 2.19-1 and i didn't touch it.

already removed by twopa in 2.19-1
What have i done for this package is only to fix what tpowa committed.
