I'm not familiar with Debian packaging, but I suppose the latter would be 
possible, and perhaps the maintainers of your Debian VDR package would 
consider including the patch in the package's source tree as an optional one 
so it'd be easier for people who want to rebuild it.  (Or even just apply it 
unconditionally by default, that's what we've done in Fedora for a long time 
and there have been no complaints.)
