Yes, an NMU version number is the thing to do. On the sparc port we used an 
extra 0 in the NMU version for things that were just recompiled (so 1.2-1 
would become 1.2-1.0.1) to note that it was not a real NMU version. Also note 
in the changelog that the package has just been recompiled, and why.
