Of course, a recompile dropping a program from /usr/bin most likely
is a bug...

I assume you use 'debdiff' that actually does those list you the
differences in file lists? And also differences in dependencies, if a
recompile introduces another dependency, it is worth fixing this now,
because after sarge is released, this might cause problems in the
future with security updates.
