There are still changes to these files in the diff:


They should not be included in the diff.

You might also want to update ./configure (and Makefile.in) itself in
d/rules, for example by using dh-autoreconf, instead of including these
rather large changes in the diff.

Is the copy of libintl necessary? At least information about it is
missing in debian/copyright:

  lightspeed-1.2a/intl/* (included in the diff)

Some of the override_* targets in debian/rules are not necessary:
dh_installchangelogs will install the ChangeLog file even when you do
not pass the file name explicitly.  You might also want to use
debian/${package}.docs and debian/${package}.manpages instead of using
override_* targets for dh_installdocs (dh_installman).
