No, I don't know such kind of tool at all.

Manually edit (sigh ;)  In old packages, there was no 
patch so, mainly for smooth cvs-upgrade, I extracted 
Debian specific modification from tetex-bin/base_*.diff.gz

tetex-bin (1.0.7+20011202-8.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * For smooth upgrading, I collected every modifications to patch-deb,
    so I hope cvs-upgrade would not cause troubles.
    Please do NOT upload this version.  [kohda]

and when I upgraded from 1.0.7+20011202 to 20021025,
20021025 to 2.0, 2.0 to 2.0.1, 2.0.1 to 2.0.2 I did
necessary modifications manually.

But this was mainly because I didn't have sufficient
knowledge on script languages etc.
