OK, explain this to me:
I installed your opensp package and tried it:

host:~# /usr/bin/onsgmls --version
/usr/bin/onsgmls:I: "OpenSP" version "1.6devel"
/usr/bin/onsgmls:<OSFD>0:1:0:E: end of document in prolog
host:~# /usr/bin/onsgmls -R
/usr/bin/onsgmls:E: invalid option "R"
/usr/bin/onsgmls:I: Try the "--help" option for more information.
host:~# dpkg -S /usr/bin/onsgmls
opensp: /usr/bin/onsgmls
host:~# dpkg -l opensp
| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed

ii  opensp         1.5release-0.0 OpenJade group's SGML parsing tools
host:~# debsums opensp |grep onsgmls
usr/bin/onsgmls                                                        OK
usr/share/man/man1/onsgmls.1.gz                                        OK

I don't get this, still 1.6devel and no -R? i purged the old ones before
this and made sure none were left...
