The mentioned patch adds a couple of

.section .note.GNU-stack

to the source.  But the affected files already contain that code, just
at different locations.

Also, lintian has a warning about executable stacks, which this package
does not trigger.

So I'm confused.

The following extract from the upstream changelog explains this.  The bug was 
filed against Etch.

Changes in 2.03 (30 Apr 2008)
  * Updated the ELF assembler sources to mark the stack as non-executable.
