This is an optional feature.  Your package requested it by setting the
DEB_AUTO_UPDATE_DEBIAN_CONTROL variable.  If you don't want that feature,
you don't have to use it.

The weak dependency on patchutils is added by simple-patchsys.mk for
performing sanity checks in the patchset.

This shouldn't happen.  Could you provide an example?
