Yeah, just that file.

Thanks - that solves it.

I think it's right to keep, but really not sure either quilt or
native is entirely applicable for a non-Debian official package.
But native will mean the build is tidier and easier.

I've done a pull request for this; it also removes the
local-config, so that 'make deb' still works. Builds good packages
