Debian: New sup packages fix format string vulnerabilities

jaguar (at) felinemenace.org discovered a format string vulnerability in sup, a set of programs to synchronize collections of files across a number of machines, whereby a remote attacker could potentially cause arbitrary code to be executed with the privileges of the supfilesrv process (this process does not run automatically by default). Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.
