So looking into the debhelper code a bit, it's just being lazy and printing 
the return value of "system", which is the exit code shifted left by 8 (or 
the signal number it died on, |128 if it core dumped, etc) -- so the exit 
code is actually 9.  You can file a wishlist bug against debhelper if you 
want, but that's really beside the point here -- which is the invalid control 
file syntax causing problems with recent versions of dpkg.
