Instead of "build .debs from the trunk", I should have said that I was
building from a tar.gz snapshot of the trunk at that point, made by
"make distcheck-light".

Apparently, the 'compat' file was not being included in the tarballs
because it was not listed in Makefile.am.

I took the liberty of reformatting the list of files in
packaging/debian/Makefile.am so that they can be compared more easily
with a list of files under SVN control.

Also, since the logic for generating libupsclient-config has changed,
I am removing it from debian/rules (it is not generated if pkgconfig
is enabled in the configure script).
