What actually fixed zssh in 1.5c.debian.1-4 is the following: * Bump debhelper compat to v10. After looking at the #388036 fix I tried v9 instead, and as expected this gave me a broken package, An actual fix would be something like: diff -Nru zssh-1.5c.debian.1/debian/control zssh-1.5c.debian.1/debian/control --- zssh-1.5c.debian.1/debian/control 2014-07-21 11:30:52.000000000 +0300 +++ zssh-1.5c.debian.1/debian/control 2018-03-12 22:33:59.000000000 +0200 @@ -2,7 +2,7 @@ Section: net Priority: optional Maintainer: Ben Wong <b...@wongs.net> -Build-Depends: cdbs, debhelper (>= 5), autotools-dev, libncurses5-dev, libreadline-dev, autoconf, quilt +Build-Depends: cdbs, debhelper (>= 5), autotools-dev, libncurses5-dev, libreadline-dev, autoconf, quilt, dh-autoreconf Standards-Version: 3.7.2 Package: zssh diff -Nru zssh-1.5c.debian.1/debian/rules zssh-1.5c.debian.1/debian/rules --- zssh-1.5c.debian.1/debian/rules 2014-07-21 11:27:39.000000000 +0300 +++ zssh-1.5c.debian.1/debian/rules 2018-03-12 22:08:24.000000000 +0200 @@ -2,6 +2,7 @@ include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/debhelper.mk include /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/autotools.mk +include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/autoreconf.mk include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/patchsys-quilt.mk DEB_INSTALL_DOCS_ALL += FAQ > Regards, > Boyuan Yang cu Adrian -- "Is there not promise of rain?"
