Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.26-4
Severity: normal


I noticed that packages using dpatch.mk have syntax errors. When running
this inside a debian package source tree:
$ /usr/bin/make -f /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/dpatch.mk
/bin/sh: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'
/bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of file

The culprit are these lines in /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/dpatch.mk:
evil_patches_that_do_nasty_things := $(shell\
if lsdiff=`which lsdiff` ; then \
  $$lsdiff -H $(DEB_PATCHES) \
  | egrep "/config\.(guess|sub|rpath)$" | tr "\n" " " ; \

After commenting out the above lines the error message went away.
