Fail to install current jed-extra

I just gave a try to the jed-extra package currently in SVN.
Installation fails because we apparently need this patch:

--- compile     (revision 166)
+++ compile     (working copy)
@@ -1,6 +1,6 @@
 #!/bin/sh -e
 case "$1"in

Please confirm it.

After applying the patch above, installation still fails with the message:

Unpacking jed-extra (from jed-extra_2.0-1_all.deb) ...
Setting up jed-extra (2.0-1) ...

I have here:

$ dpkg -l jed libslang2 | grep îi
ii  jed    editor for programmers (textmode version)
ii  libslang2      2.0.5-1        The S-Lang programming library - runtime ver

Any hints?
