The `hello' package's control file doesn't contain a Section field.

The Section field, amongst others, is put in the Packages file on

Please refer to the packaging guidelines for details of what should
appear in your package control files.  Don't look in the Packages
file, since it contains information which shouldn't appear in your
control file.

Perhaps I should make dpkg-deb throw up an error if your package
contains `size', `filename', `md5sum' &c.
