Deleted, there's nothing on CVS on sourceforge and it seems there is
not any gebs' CVS server anyway. I also orphaned the other package of
it's maintainer, because his last activity was three years ago and
both his packages are terribly out of date.

I'll delete this one when the gens package gets updated.

Did you emailed it's maintainer? It's possible he doesn't have email
notifications enabled.

The same as for bin32-gens.

Thank you,
