OK, err, well.. It was one part of it.  Now, I can't run that
script...  I've tried sudo and no sudo and I get different errors in
either method.

mick at freevo:/build/newxine/xine-lib-vdr-1.1.3$ debuild binary
/usr/bin/fakeroot: 152: debian/rules: Permission denied
debuild: fatal error at line 1206:
couldn't exec fakeroot debian/rules:
mick at freevo:/build/newxine/xine-lib-vdr-1.1.3$ sudo debuild binary
Can't exec "debian/rules": Permission denied at /usr/bin/debuild line 1201.
debuild: fatal error at line 1200:
couldn't exec debian/rules: Permission denied

Line 152 appears to be a simple "echo" command to blit the scripts
version to the screen.  So something about my permissions must be very
broken.  I've tried su as well and I get the same error as sudo.

What the?  This newbie is dumbfounded..
