The problem is with dpkg-scanpackages. It complains about any non-main
packages because it thinks they are in the wrong directories. The output
still works, of course. The man page says:
dpkg-scanpackages outputs the usual self-explanatory
errors. It also warns about packages that are in the
wrong subdirectory, are duplicated, have a Filename field
in their control file, are missing from the override file,
or have maintainer substitutions which do not take effect.
Perhaps this particular warning should be turned off/down...
