There are several ways to fix the failure.

1. Replace `debian/rules patch` line in a test script with `chmod +x

--- a/debian/tests/entry
+++ b/debian/tests/entry
@@ -13,6 +13,6 @@ fi
 set -x
-debian/rules patch
+chmod +x autotests/tty{on,off}
 make autotest SHELL="${1:-/bin/sh}"


2. Put the "patch" target back as it was in -3 revision, and fix arch-
independent build.


I still prefer the later option with the "patch" target. Because that
chmod fixes flaws of quilt and dpkg and this solutions is more
universal. I hope someone will choose to upload another one-liner fix.
