It's arguable when "current" is better than "stable with critical updates"
which is offered by Debian stable.

ejabberd (and ejabberdctl) *is* working when is built from source. The author
just didn't pay much attention for making ejabberdctl convenient to user.

For example: 1) one have to run ejabberdctl from ejabberd install directory,
2) ejabberd has -name option hardcoded while user could run ejabberd with
-sname option.
