OK, thank you.

I suggest using the following patch which is simpler and adds -fPIC:

--- i2util-1.6/debian/rules
+++ i2util-1.6/debian/rules
@@ -1,10 +1,10 @@
 #!/usr/bin/make -f

-#export DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS = hardening=+all

-export DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS = hardening=+bindnow
-include /usr/share/dpkg/
+export DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS=hardening=+all

     [ ! -f Makefile ] || $(MAKE) distclean

I think you can also use the default dh_auto_configure, but I have not
tested that.

It is recommended to work with the same sponsors and as I see
Martin kindly sponsored your last (iperf3) uploads. If Martin can't
sponsor this upload I would happily do it but I need some more
time to review the package.
