While the package 'kfreebsd-source-8.1' is missing 'debian/', the source
package 'kfreebsd-8'[1] does have 'debian/'. So

 apt-get build-dep kfreebsd-8
 apt-get source kfreebsd-8
 cd kfreebsd-8-8.1
 dpkg-buildpackage ...


The 'kfreebsd-source-8.1' package not having a 'debian/' seems like a
bug to me. Is it?
