No, I forgot to add --pristine-tar when doing gbp import-orig, and I don't know how to do it retroactively; I guess that whoever imports the next upstream version can create the branch (or somebody more knowledgeable about git-buildpackage can do it now for the current version).

Hm, somebody else already uploaded the package now, so I can't change it anymore for this upload.
As for why I have to regenerate the lexer and parser, I think some of the arguments from  apply, but in particular, just including <locale.h> in dbacl.h did not fix the FTBFS issue; I actually had to regenerate the lexer and parser for my changes to take effect (or maybe I just made a mistake somewhere - I don't have much experience with flex/bison).
In any case, thank you very much for having a look at my changes (and also for creating the Salsa repositories!).
