Would you believe I ran into this problem when making my last build.
So I just ran "debian/rules build".  I'm not sure:  don't the policy
or programmer manual say that the rules file should fail on errors?  I
suppose could make it more robust.  But I probably won't release a new
version (nor close the bug) until I can do something more substantial

Boy you must check Incoming daily :)
