I've found that it affects the same packages on both my home and work
machines. It's either a subtle bug in dpkg-dev, only triggered by
certain packaging arrangements, or in apt-get - which I think is more
likely. Not sure how to word the bug report.
Not a brand new problem, though - search the archives on "Package
compilation madness" for some more on this.
If the universe were simple enough to be understood, we would be too
simple to understand it.
