I'm not sponsoring at the moment, but here is a review:
You adjusted the conflicts/replaces but didn't mention why in debian/changelog.
The upstream README includes install instructions. I'd suggest asking
upstream to split them out into README.install since they aren't
useful in the binary package.
The upstream CHANGES file looks like it should be renamed to NEWS:
The copyright years in debian/copyright need updating.
The -Wall option is not passed to gcc.
Despite that, there is one gcc warning (please forward upstream):
In file included from regex.c:66:
regex_internal.h:120:1: warning: "__mempcpy" redefined
In file included from /usr/include/string.h:635,
/usr/include/bits/string2.h:207:1: warning: this is the location of
the previous definition
