It should. I changed the code to 

#	rm -f debian/ess/usr/share/ess/etc/ess-sas-sh-command
	chmod 0755 debian/ess/usr/share/ess/etc/ess-sas-sh-command

so instead of deleting we now keep it and make it executable.  

Does your ESS installation actually expect it at 


If so, we're set.  Ping me off list if you want to try a new test package
which (given that it contains only .el files and scripts) can be installed on
Ubuntu too.

Cheers, Dirk
