True.  This is because the override file needs changes.  In cases
where you can seen from the dinstall log that the package is going to
a place not indicated in your debian/control file, you need to ask for
a change in the override file.

To be honest, I'm not sure if the best way to fix this scenario is (a)
a bug against ftp.debian.org, or (b) an email to
<override-change@debian.org>.  Guy?
