Well, this was kind of on purpose. The "upstream" tarball was broken
from the release branch, so I built it from the "minimakefile" branch,
where the release code was fully rewritten in Lisp and debugged,
instead of being a haphazard mix of Makefile, shell scripting and Lisp
code with bits of perl. I believe the debian release script was built
from the release branch, with a tiny commit to debian/rules as
compared to the version tagged 3.1.5 upstream. In all cases, the asdf
code itself is unchanged, but some of the build and packaging files
have been tweaked.

The situation is therefore not perfect, even though everything in
under source control. I'd hope for a new debian package maintainer to
fix all those kinks; maybe have a separate git branch and/or repo.
