I'd vote for editing the files at package build time (and, in
particular, keeping the edits out of the diffs).  From my Majordomo
package, in debian.rules:

        cd debian-tmp/usr/lib/majordomo && \
                perl -pi -e 's?^\#!/usr/local/bin/perl?\#!/usr/bin/perl?' \
                        bounce-remind \
                        digest \
                        majordomo \
                        new-list \
                        request-answer \
                        resend \
                        test \
                        archive2.pl \
                        bin/approve \
                        bin/medit \
                        bin/bounce \
                        contrib/archive.pl \
                        contrib/archive2.pl \
