The upstream tarball must be present and named correctly.  For example,
assuming your package has version 0.1-1, you need
webcam-server-0.1.orig.tar.gz in the same directory as webcam-server-0.1/, the
directory with the source.  It may be a symbolic link, the important thing is
the name.  Also, the version (0.1) is derived from the debian/changelog entry.
So that must be equal to the name of the tarball plus a debian-part (in this
example, 0.1-1).
