I did a patch which I think is right (updating a couple of peter's for 4.3).
it's here:http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=234808 

I eventually found a machine with enough space to build new debs, but I
haven't tested them yet to prove the probs are fixed. (It certainly was
broken on netwinder without it)
Here's the fixed xfree86-xserver deb:http://www.aleph1.co.uk/test/ 
That's the only affected deb isn't it peter (there are several hundred megs
more stuff that the complete build made but not publically accessible)?
