If the source for the respective binary packages you want to binNMU is
not in the security-archive you need to to a sourceful upload without
changes (but wait first that the dietlibc version has been built) and
avialable. I guess that is for almost all the cases you need to do,
since they are if I understood correctly just 'minit' and 'mksh',
neither of those two are on security.d.o, so you need to do a
sourcefull upload.
