Re: Why won't patch create new files?

For me:

$ dpkg-source -x patch_2.5-2.dsc 
dpkg-source: extracting patch in patch-2.5

And everything seems to be fine, eg. the package builds cleanly 

$ cd patch-2.5
$ dpkg-buildpackag -b -us -uc -rsudo

I have the same versions. There must be something else...
Perhaps you can give some more info?
