See my other E-mail - amd64 and i386 are now available as well (built on
unstable, so they are suitable for testing, unstable and experimental).

Right - it's an SVN snapshot of trunk from last Sunday.

Did you talk to Tobi about including those bindings in the RRDtool
distribution? Then, I'd create a package for them, too. If they are
shipped as a separate source tarball, a separate Debian source package
should be used for that. Since I do not use PHP at all, it does not make
sense for me to maintain any such package - in that case, you could,
e.g., file an RFP (request for package) bug - see [1] for details.
