Okay, I've attached the patch.  This should work for the 0.8.12 version
in warty.

The problem seems to be that the Makefile needs to determine the os to
use, but hadn't accounted for the presence of "Ubuntu" in
the /etc/issues file.  So, the patch adds that check and then assigns
the OS to debian, since that works.

Using diff is extremely foreign to me, so if I didn't get the right
options, feel free to point me to the right doc for this sort of stuff.

Oh, and this should be applied _after_ the sbcl diff already in the
universe repo, though I doubt it makes any difference.
