Bug#234160: libgnucrypto-java: FTBFS: Tries to reverse patch in debian/rules clean

Package: libgnucrypto-java
Severity: serious

Thanks for your responsiveness to my last bug report.  Unfortunately,
with the new version there's a new problem:

 fakeroot debian/rules clean
rm -f build-stamp configure-stamp config.log config.status
patch -R -p0 < /tmp/buildd/libgnucrypto-java-
patching file jce/Makefile.in
Unreversed patch detected!  Ignore -R? [n] 
Apply anyway? [n] 
Skipping patch.
1 out of 1 hunk ignored -- saving rejects to file jce/Makefile.in.rej
make: *** [clean] Error 1

I think the usual way to deal with this problem is to touch something
like patch-stamp after patching, and then to make the clean rule check
for the existence of patch-stamp before trying to reverse the patch.
