I've gotten the impression that the best way to do it is to use
*pristine* uptream source, which means that the .orig.tar.gz is really
the tar file you downloaded.  The changes should all be in the
(automatically generated) .diff.gz.

You should either do something like this near the end of debian/rules,
or move the binary back into the bin directory.
