is it possible that you have something in ~/.gbp.conf or
/etc/git-buildpackage/gbp.conf or debian/gbp.conf or .git/gbp.conf that
is failing against some new version of git-buildpackage?

i'm running git-buildpackage 0.6.8, and from an empty directory, i get a
successful build of libspiro 20071029-9 from:

  git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-fonts/libspiro
  cd libspiro
  git checkout upstream
  git checkout pristine-tar
  git checkout master
  git-buildpackage -uc -us

does that work for you?
