Not always. In some cases (for example, two of my packages) the error
was to modify a .po file "in place" to update it. The second time
you build the package, dpkg-source complains about the .mo files,
as they are binary files and they have been modified.
How do people deal with this, BTW? Maybe by configuring the package in
another directory and using the VPATH feature of make?
