This is a pretty weird thing to do with the version.  If you had
packaged a git snapshot then the version should have been
5.3.3+git$DATE, but it doesn't appear that you have so I don't think it
was appropriate to change the orig source at all.

I don't have any good suggestions for adding binary files to a 1.0
format package, though I believe the old way was to MIME-encode or
uuencode them and then decode at build time.  (Ugh.)
