It has tried to parse the Debian changelog and something in it is wrong.
To just get the thing built, if you are building it for yourself and not
distributing is to just mangle the changelog so it has one entry.

It's evil but it may work for you.

For my Changelog.pm line 533 is where its trying to find the meta data
like maintaier etc.
