This involved doing another build of the package, which could involve
changes in the buildroot and anomalies in the build process.  Ask DaveJ
some time about what happened to his kernel builds when the build host
did a clock adjustment during the build.  Shit happens, and making
assumptions that just because the build completed that nothing went
wrong is a great way to make a fool of yourself.
