Binary package hint: ucf

The use of ':' in the filenames in /var/lib/ucf/cache/ causes the kernel's generation of an initramfs image to fail.  If you use an Ubuntu-based rootfs in CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE in your kernel config, you'll get the following error when it's building the initramfs:
/usr/src/linux/linux-2.6.32/usr/Makefile:50: *** target pattern contains no `%'.  Stop.
make[1]: *** [usr] Error 2
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

Tested with Lucid and 2.6.32 kernel with latest Ubuntu patches.  This
could be addressed by modifying the kernel's initramfs generation code
or by choosing a more friendly delimiter in the ucd filename.
