Sorry to have not been able to help with this more. I'm still recovering
from a particularly nasty bout of stomach flu. :/

This is disturbing to me as well. I build all packages in a chroot as a
matter of course, and didn't have any trouble with the build. The keys
that were generated as part of the normal build process aren't
particularly useful in the context of a Debian package, so when I saw them
being generated, I just removed them, but I thought they were being
generated under DESTDIR.
I'm not at all sure why you were seeing different results than I was. I
will definitely investigate. It may be that I missed something because I
was building in a chroot as a non-root user and therefore writing to
/etc/shibboleth in the chroot was failing and I didn't notice that error.
Thank you very much for fixing this, and as soon as I have focus again,
I'll make sure that the packages in unstable are also fixed if needed.
