Unfortunately my previous patch introduced an error. I fixed it.

Please also note that I did not include in the patch this default:
DEB_ROOT ?= $(abspath $(dir $(firstword $(MAKEFILE_LIST)))/..)

The first default will allow get-orig-source to work from any directory, without the need to override DEB_ROOT.
