I considered that the patch has to answer the reproducibility issue
only, and that maybe the maintainer had some reason to stay without
dh-autoreconf at present, but I can also switch to dh-autoreconf.

What should be the behavior in case some characters are not parsed?
Maybe dying without converting the image is too abrupt, so the partial
parsing made by strtoull appeared sensible to me.

OK, I will do that after including you suggestions.
