I'm trying to build OFED-1.4.2 for Debian 5.0.1 runtime and
experiecing failure.

- the machine is a custom PPC32.
- plain Debian 5.0.1 installation with apt-get additions.
- dpkg-checkbuilddeps complains incorrect format of "debian/control"

$ svn-buildpackage -uc -us -rfakeroot
Complete layout information:
dpkg-checkbuilddeps: error: syntax error in debian/control at line 5: line with unknown format (not field-colon-value)
Insufficient Build-Deps, stop!

The offending line of debian/control is;

     1  Source: libibverbs
     2  Priority: extra
     3  Maintainer: OFED and Debian Developement and Discussion <pkg-ofed-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org>
     4  Uploaders: Benoit Mortier <benoit.mortier at opensides.be>, Guy Coates <gmpc at sanger.ac.uk>, Mario Lang <mlang at debian.org>, 
Roland Dreier
     5  <rolandd at cisco.com>
     6  Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 7), autotools-dev, automake1.9
     7  Standards-Version: 3.8.3
     8  Section: libs
     9  Homepage: http://www.openfabrics.org/

Note that the line 5 seems a part of the previous line and begins non-blank character.
That's reason why dpkg-checkbuildeps reports a syntax error, I guess.

The line 5 should have a single blank character at the line head, or should wrap into
the previous line.

Q1. Is this correct conclusion?
Q2. how can I fix it?  Correcting the offending line produces further errors;

rm -f build-stamp
# Add here commands to clean up after the build process.
[ ! -f Makefile ] || /usr/bin/make distclean
rm -f config.sub config.guess
dh_clean  --exclude ./Makefile.am.orig --exclude ./libibverbs.spec.in.orig examples/.libs/*
E: Found unresolved issues:

?      svn-commit.tmp
 M      debian/control
 M      debian/control.in
