Yes, I know, but the maintainer-manual said that I should change
the directory name, in this case I changed from Expect-1.08 to
libexpect-perl-1.08 and IO-Stty-.02 to libio-stty-perl-0.02.

That's what made dpkg-buildpackage complain. When I fixed that,
everything was fine.

So, what should I do?
If I don't change there will be problem building the package
and if I change the signature will be wrong.

Or did I misinterprate the manual, should I only change the name
on the tarball?
