Would an acceptable alternative be if there was a way to edit the
original sources and regenerate the 'waf' file in some way, either from
other files in the same source package (an unpacked wafadmin/ directory)
or using some other package in the archive (e.g. a waf package)?
lintian 2.5.5, recently uploaded in unstable, introduced a new tag
called "source-contains-waf-binary", which checks whether waf "binary"
is available in source packages. Please see  for further information.
We just added the tag to the dak nonfatal autoreject list, that means
packages triggering that error will be automatically rejected by dak,
unless the tag is overridden for a good reason.
At the time of writing this email, several packages still need to be
processed , please consider fixing them before Wheezy freeze.
This would be similar to the way 'configure' files generated by autoconf
are treated at the moment.
