I had recently being using sshfp, so I believe it would be a useful addition to
the archive. I've made several changes to your package, listed bellow:

- I used the pristine tar.gz, as I don't see any reason not to.
- I had removed the previous contents of debian/changelog, as the pre-debian
  packaging history is of little/no use.
- I removed the patch that replaced © by (c) in the manpage, as manpages now
  support utf-8 encodings.
- I changed packaging from cdbs to dh, as cdbs is too dificult to follow. I
  used dh instead of plain debhelper to keep the debian/rules files small and
  simple. Even though this increased debian/compat to 7. (not really needed,
  but I really don't like cdbs)
- I added dpatch support and dependency. (as a replacement of simplepatchsys)
- I created a patch that fixes some quirks in the Makefile (should be forward
  to upstream).
- I created a patch that fixes some quirks in the manpage (should be forward to
- I changed the debian/copyright file to include the same text as is presented in
  the source code.
- I added a debian/watch file (always a good idea to have one).
- I added myself as uploader.
- I added the Homepage: field.
- I upgraded the Standards-Version, no changes needed.

Please review those changes and contact me when you feel that your package is
good to be uploaded.
