Yes, it is. However, the avahi sources ship with all the howl tools
included because we use them to make sure our HOWL compatibility
libraries work. Debian doesn not ship them in a compiled form, though.

Our native avahi replacements for the howl-tools are much more
powerful and complete anyway, hence there is no need to use anything
else than that.
