No, this is because your standards version is 3.5.0, and the current
version is 3.5.2

Another thing: you should use a newer debian/rules file. There is a new
target 'configure' which you can use to call ./configure.
When doing this, look out if you have to depend on debhelper >= 3.0.

Yet another thing: your Build-depends seems wrong.
Policy says: 'A source package may declare a dependency or a conflict 
on a binary package', but your are depending on a source package
(libghttp), not the binary package (libghttp1). Ah, no, it should be
libghttp-dev, the header package. 
Hmm, the configure file should also check for ghttp.h, it didnt complain
when I run it without having ghttp.h, but compiling fails:
gladesig.c:6: ghttp.h: No such file or directory
