Those are related to a licensecheck improvement. Those checks should
really go away and be run by the maintainer when he wants to check it
and not automatically on build.

Those might be related to the change made on quilt:

It might be that CDBS packages using tarball in tarball and the quilt
patching were implicitely using this feature... if that's the case I'd
like to know how many packages are affected to be able to decide
if we should revert that change.

Can you retry all the packages that might be affected by this with quilt
0.46-4.1 instead of 0.46-5 ?

A few random packages analyzed:

The bigger one like icedove and iceowl are probably related too.
