I suggest to target experimental instead of sid, because the package is
part of wheezy.

The changelog is not very verbose. Please extend. For instance you bump
the Standards-Version but do not mention which (if any) changes were
needed for that. Similarly I'd expect the conversion of debian/copyright
to be mentioned. Reasons for adding or dropping patches would be nice,

Can you check whether Multi-Arch: foreign is applicable to the tcpflow
binary package?

Just a stylistic hint you can choose to ignore: Instead of overriding
dh_auto_clean, you can mention files to be deleted in debian/clean which
will be picked up by dh_clean.

The debian/copyright information appear to be incomplete and wrong. The
main license file contains the GPL-3 whereas debian/copyright claims
GPL-1. In addition the source ships a mp5.c within public domain and a
header from the glibc both of which can be down-licensed as GPL-3.
Nevertheless it would be nice to have them mentioned in debian/copyright
explicitly. You also dropped the previous authors for debian/* content.
This license issues are why I tag the RFS as moreinfo. Please remove the
tag after fixing.

Instead of invoking boostrap.sh and cleaning the configure stuff you
might be able to just use dh-autoreconf. I did not verify whether this
