I agree. As soon as a source is compiled with -fsigned-char and contains a 
function which calls a function _not_ compiled with -fsigned-char passing a 
char, this approach doesn't work.

Btw., I did the grep on a local copy of the build logs. If you don't find the 
log of your package at http://buildd.debian.org/ let me know and I will you 
send an excerpt of the log.
