They *are* correct. You need debian/ *and* ooo-build. There will be even
more barriers when you just point to debian/. That will just do nothing
you can use to build a package. (Yes, there's a get-ooo-build target, though,
but you get a problem when you already have the sources there in

Hacking on the package can also be done on the source package you
get using apt-get source.

But yes, I agree it'd be easier if we didn't have the extra ooo-build there
(or if we switched to "3.0 (quilt)" with an extra ooo-build tarball.
