[Reportbug-maint] Bug#522010: reportbug: FTBFS with bin-NMU version

Package: reportbug
Version: 4.0
Severity: normal

From my pbuilder build log, with a hook script installed which creates a dummy 
version "4.0+pb1":

 debian/rules build
# Test if versions are synchronized; this will bomb if not synced
Please update reportbug/__version__
make: *** [build-stamp] Error 1
dpkg-buildpackage: failure: debian/rules build gave error exit status 2

This isn't that serious since reportbug is Architecture: all.  Still, it would 
be nice to be able to build a package locally with a different version from the 
official packages, so that apt doesn't get confused between the two.
