Not at all. The packages was built with pbuilder. It still is not
fully understandable, so I'll try explain:

olson db = tzdata source package upstream

olson db + time zone compiler (zic) = tzdata binary package

olson db + parse_olsen translator = DateTime::TimeZone official CPAN
source package = Debian source package

Debian source package + pbuilder = Debian binary package

The Debian source package is based on official CPAN package and
contains already parsed database which is provided by original author.

I did the same work as upstream author, so I called parse_olsen
translator and I've got the path for new Debian source package.

Of course it builds our Debian binary package correctly.
