  I have a mipsel box.  I just tried building dsc-statistics_201008131729-6
with pbuilder in a sid chroot.  It built successfully for me.  I didn't apply
your patch, but of course it wouldn't have provided any useful information
as the wdiff command didn't see too many changes:

/usr/bin/pod2man --section=8 --release="DSC " --lax \
        --center="Debian GNU/Linux" debian/dsc.pod > debian/dsc.8
pdftotext docsrc/dsc-manual.pdf docsrc/dsc-manual.txt
pdftotext doc/dsc-manual.pdf doc/dsc-manual.txt
if [ "$(wdiff --no-common docsrc/dsc-manual.txt doc/dsc-manual.txt |
wc -l)" -gt 6 ]; then \
                echo "too many changes in docs since release,
.orig.tar.gz repackaging needed"; \
                exit 1; \
cp docsrc/dsc-manual.pdf

I'm not sure why the build would have failed on monteverdi.
