Maybe I should have elaborated a bit more.  While it uses quilt
executing 'quilt push -a' fails with the message 'No patches in series'.
Additionally, the structure of the debian/patches directory seemed a bit

all.series        bugs    mc.ext  README  utf8
autgen-run.patch  debian  po      syntax  vfs
