Good point, I'll do this.

Unfortunately, configure isn't malleable enough and so needs some extra
patching that I'll send upstream afterwards.

I did, but on the source package, not realising it needed running on the
binary afterwards too. pbuilder ran it but it disappeared and I didn't
scroll back - my bad. It's a learning curve for me.
I'll be making a whole host of changes to the next upload so that it
complies with the FHS properly etc.
Thanks for the pointers.
