Package: haskell-regex-compat
Version: 0.92-1.1
Severity: serious

There is a missing "," in the end of second last line in build-deps:

Build-Depends: cpphs, dpkg-dev (>= 1.13.19), debhelper (>= 5.0.0),
 dpatch, ghc6 (>= 6.10), ghc6-prof, haskell-devscripts (>= 0.6.6),
 libghc6-regex-base-dev (>= 0.93), libghc6-regex-base-prof (>= 0.93)
 libghc6-regex-posix-dev (>= 0.93), libghc6-regex-posix-prof (>= 0.93)

new dpkg-dev will detect this and fail:

dpkg-buildpackage: source package haskell-regex-compat
dpkg-buildpackage: source version 0.92-1.1
dpkg-buildpackage: host architecture armel
dpkg-checkbuilddeps: warning: can't parse dependency libghc6-regex-base-prof (>= 0.93)
 libghc6-regex-posix-dev (>= 0.93)

You might want to check for this on other haskell libs before starting the
binNMU campaign.

That's because all other archs built haskell-regex-compat
before the change in dpkg-checkbuilddeps. Try it now with a up-to-date
pbuilder :)
