I *think* what's happening is the reproducible builds git tree doesn't include tags for the version, and .dist-version isn't present, so ./get-version is returning an empty string (it can't get it from git or From .dist-version), so "autoreconf -f -i" fails... running: echo 126.96.36.199~reproducible5 > .dist-version autoreconf -f -i debuild -us -uc # or your build of choice Seems to fix/workaround the issue. live well, vagrant
