They are indeed.
The md5sum changes because the original package provides config.sub and
config.guess, which are autogenerated by autotools and, therefore, shouldn't be
shipped with the upstream package at all.
When I build my .deb, the "clean" rule of debian/rules just deletes them, since
they're automatically generated.
I think this is a minor issue: should I contact the upstream author to remove
those files, or should I leave it the way it is? Debian Policy states (I don't
exactly remember where) that if the changes are of minor importance (like this
one), it is ok to use the "modified" version.

I've added imagemagick and nautilus: they were the missing ones.
About pbuilder: I can't create a pbuilder chroot. Here's the error it gives:

E: Couldn't install system due to errors!

The only noticeable thing is:

W: resolver (libdevmapper1.02): package doesn't exist

I've googled, but haven't found anything. I could create a chroot on my own, but
I'd like to use pbuilder. Do you have any idea on that?

Thank you.
