The symptom is that if you compile the package with noweb installed (a
Build-Depend which is not really stated but needed for some other stuff),
the package will redo inet.dfn based on ifupdown.nw. You should have 
patched ifupdown.nw

¿Didn't you not see this error?

Makefile:101: ifupdown.d: No existe el fichero o el directorio
./makenwdep.sh ifupdown.nw > ifupdown.d
./makenwdep.sh: line 8: noroots: command not found

noroots is provided by nowebm. Install that package, the error disappears, 
makenwdep does it job properly, but then inet{6,}.defn are regenerated from

I don't really know how the previous error affects the package, if at 
all, but if there is a problem your package probably suffers from it.
