Umm, that doesn't help when using "apt-get source docbook-utils",
since db2html is created by the diff.gz part and thus doesn't have its
permissions preserved by dpkg-source.  You need to put something in
debian/rules to make sure the permissions are correct -- either chmod
+x debian/db2html before it's copied, or use something like install -m
755 debian/db2html debian/docbook-utils/usr/bin/.
