Building Perl 5.6.0 deb

This is on PowerPC.  I got perl-5.6_5.6.0-0.2 sources from


and tried building binaries (Debian FAQ, `6.14 How do I build binary
packages from a source package?').

    dpkg-source -x *dsc ## seems fine
    cd *0               ##  "     "
    debian/rules build  ##  "     "
    debian/rules binary ## fails, tail of the output is as follows:

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/perl-5.6_5.6.0-0.2/perl-5.6-5.6.0'
