problems building branden's debs on potato

Dear People,

After many many retries, it seems I'm almost at the point of successfully
building Branden's phase2v17 debs on potato (don't ask :).  I had the most
trouble with the mix of glide3 and glide2 that x requires, but that was
solved.  What I'm getting now is the following:

lots of packages being successfully built and then:

dpkg-deb: building package `xserver-common' in
dpkg-deb: building package `xserver-xfree86' in
dpkg-deb: building package `xterm' in
dpkg-deb: conffile `/etc/X11/rstart/commands/@List' does not appear in
dpkg-deb: building package `xutils' in
dh_builddeb: command returned error code
make: *** [debian/stampdir/binary-arch] Error 1
Build command 'cd xfree86-4.0.1 && dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc' failed.

Checking debian/xutils/DEBIAN/control and conffiles shows that variables
like "/etc/X11/rstart/commands/@List" (in conffiles) are not being
expanded, and some variables evaluate to null strings, as in the
following: "Depends: xfree86-common (>= 4.0.1)," (in control).

Does anyone have any ideas about what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks for any help!
