Ok, it does compile now. (But have a look at Joost's suggestion anyway
for next time.)

The difference was basically the order in which letters where added to
the alphabet. You should probably make that user-configurable.

I've had a look at the package:
* please use a real name in the changelog
  (lintian: W: aldo source: changelog-should-mention-nmu)
* your Build-Depends look overly restricted. (Why >= x.y for all
  packages?) libc6-dev is listed twice.
  (lintian will complain about libc6-dev when you fix that).
* Description:
  - the license/operating system does not really matter here
  - the Koch method could use an explanation
  - on the other hand, "read from file" explains itself
  - "With this exercise you can train receiving randomly generated
* debian/copyright lists only you, but some files have
  "improved : Bob Harrington" - did he contribute much, i.e. does have
  a copyright on that files himself?

NB, how does aldo compare to the other morse programs (apt-cache
search morse) in Debian?
