Turns out the problem is with the "O=/var/tmp/build" since it works to
build the deb-pkg target in the current directory just fine, using the
same .config and same arguements.  

I guess I'll start to bisect this and see when it last worked.
Looking at the scripts/package/builddeb script, it just needs to be
updated to use the O=/some/path in the find command.  I think.  But I
don't know the build system at all.
