I was able to create the patch based on your tip. Here's how I created working

# apt-get source autofs
# tar xzf autofs_3.9.99-4.0.0pre10.orig.tar.gz
# cd autofs-3.9.99-4.0.0pre10
# zcat ../autofs_3.9.99-4.0.0pre10-16.diff.gz | patch -p1
# cp -p /var/tmp/autofs-amd64.diff debian/patches/045_amd64
# chmod 755 debian/rules
# dpkg-buildpackage

I've attached the patch. If someone can verify that it works I guess I can
attach it to a bug for autofs.
