Re: ZIP library compilation
I was able to get past this error after removing the output of md5sum in debian/rules. But, I still see the following TAR related errors when the build process attempts to do DPKG_DEB. I think these errors are trivial and wanted to know if there is any way DPKG_DEB can ignore these errors from TAR?
cd debian/tmp && \
md5sum `find * -type f ! -regex "DEBIAN/.*"`
chown -R root:root debian/tmp
chmod -R u+w,go=rX debian/tmp
dpkg --build debian/tmp ..
dpkg-deb: building package `zip' in `../zip_2.32-1_armel.deb'.

I was compiling the "Zip" library - the unstable SID version, using dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot.
I got the following error, and was wondering if anyone would have seen it before:
Error: File ./md5sums changed as we read it.
I do see the DEB file generated, but the file is empty (0 bytes). I sense I am pretty close to generating the DEB file, but am not sure how to correct the last error.
Any help would be appreciated,
