Thanks Torsten,

I actually did that intentionally, I saw many people saying that
packages with source 3.0 (quilt) format should be stored with patches
applied (different than the case in 1.0). I've actually had some DDs
ask me to apply and some ask me to remove. The .pc/ actually showed up
when I did "git buildpackage", so I took it to mean that git wants the
patches applied to source 3.0 quilt packages. What's your opinion on
this? [1]

Thanks for catching this. README.debian is actually provided by
upstream in their own debian/ directory! I missed cleaning that one

Will do. What is your opinion on keeping upstream's configure versus
running our own autoreconf? I don't mind either way.

That makes sense to move the libraries to /usr/lib/jni. The reason I
did not move it there was because I was afraid of affecting packages
that depend on this. But this is a jni library and thus should be in
usr/lib/jni. It is a bug that it is currently not in jni, so we should
fix that.

Apply all the patches from debian/series before building your package:
the working directory standard form with "3.0 (quilt)" is with patches
