What in the package depends on the patch package?  That package only
contains the patch program, and miscfiles does not require it to build.

There is no requirement to have a Build-Depends line if you don't
actually have any build dependencies.  miscfiles doesn't have any.
(Or, if you think it does, please file a bug report and explain!)  But
I checked, and I can't find any such thing.

But see, at the time, because he didn't contact me, I could check
that!  It's only now that I am able to check and see that there are
mistakes.  I shouldn't have to wait to complain about a wrongly
uploaded NMU to see if it broke anything.
