Beware, this may get tricky: building within pbuilder (via gbp), the
manpage gets pretty scarce (I know I didn’t get it right either on the
first try with doctrine and doctrine-dbal either, and it looks like I
messed up with apigen now — yay, another stuff to fix):

try to do it when possible: among other goodies, it helps integrate patch
from a further upstream version, and also helps to prepare and forward
patch upstream.)
