hmm. I don't think it is patch that is doing the complaining.
$ tar xvzf edsadmin-0.8.1.orig.tar.gz
$ mv edsadmin-0.8.1.orig edsadmin-0.8.1
$ zcat edsadmin_0.8.1-2.diff.gz | patch -p0
patching file edsadmin-0.8.1/debian/changelog
patching file edsadmin-0.8.1/data/Makefile
patching file edsadmin-0.8.1/config.status

dh_clean seems to kill that directory. I guess I'll just make sure to
remove that from my tarballs. It looks like using a newer version of
automake will give me a maintainer-clean target that removes this stuff
and dist will roll my tarball for me (without that stuff).
