Ok, I see that this functionality is provided by dpkg version 188.8.131.52
or newer. Ubuntu karmic uses 1.15.4 while jaunty uses 1.14.24. I

where you can only build code on Debian Sid systems, we need to build
applications for servers that are running (relatively) stable versions
of the operating system.
