Rebuilding the package apparently fixed the problems.  Given that the tags

W: aiccu: script-not-executable ./etc/pm/sleep.d/60aiccu
W: aiccu: executable-not-elf-or-script ./etc/aiccu.conf
W: aiccu: executable-not-elf-or-script ./usr/share/aiccu/conf-templates/aiccu.conf
W: aiccu: maintainer-script-empty preinst

the first three were probably fixed by dh_fixperms running properly.  I
don't know why that didn't happen in the original build that was uploaded
to the archive, or what happened with the last tag.

aptitude download -t unstable aiccu followed by running lintian on the
package in the archive produces the same tags as what lintian.d.o shows.
