Thanks for the report. I had no idea packages like this existed.

That's not very pretty, but it obviously exists, so I will try and cope
with it.

That's ok, I can't imagine anything has changed.

I can't see the package that you mention in the archive, is there one
that will show this problem already there? Otherwise where do I find the
tarball in question? I'm guessing I can just throw a quick debian/ dir
together to test it, but if not I would appreciate pointers on how to
trigger the problem.

Thanks for trying builddeb and reporting your problems.
