 Been bitten by that as well, this is a recent breakage though.

 I'm attaching a patch and bumping the severity, justification:
 - I've found 12 packages with no debian/patches using simple-patchsys
   in debian/rules explicitely,
 - I've found 17 packages with no patches in debian/patches using
   simple-patch in debian/rules explicitely.

 and that's only in pkg-gnome.
