hrm, then I probably need to revert several commits in the nqp package.
Sorry for the hassle!  I'll clean it up as soon as I can.

The funny thing is that I was getting build errors (in nqp) with the
upstream sources and the patches (after merging upstream into the master
branch), however after I'd updated the nqp source to that in the patches and
committed (in master), then `debuild -uc -us` ran properly (i.e. I wasn't
getting any errors about locally changed sources).  This is probably because
I wasn't using dquilt when creating the patches, which I just learned from
the link you mentioned.  This then begs the question: are you able to build
the nqp package correctly in its current state?
