1) Best to cc the wnpp bugreport on such messages, so that when someone looks
into re2c, s/he'll notice your work.
2) you introduce quite some stuff that probably should have been cleaned in
the clean target, like stamp files, .deps/*.Po files, etc... Please make sure
your clean target removes all autogenerated files.
Also, you don't need to ship a prerm that solely has a debhelper token, you
can then simply omit it and debhelper will put its stuff if needed into the
package as prerm anyway. Same for postinst.
