Bug#158953: dpkg-buildpackage: unchecked call to perl when setting sversion

Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.10.4
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

Without this, if the 'perl' command is a symlink to /bin/true (or any
other similar behaviour), you get a .changes called
pacakge__arch.changes and no errors. (No, I don't know why this could
happen, it's just paranoia).

With it, you get:
dpkg-buildpackage: source package is m4
dpkg-buildpackage: source version is 1.4-14
dpkg-buildpackage: source maintainer is Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>
dpkg-buildpackage: host architecture is i386
dpkg-buildpackage: unable to determine source version without epoch
