Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Hmm... I'm confused. You wrote that you want to build the source package
and then show output of a binary build ("dpkg-buildpackage -b")?

Assuming you want to build a binary package, no, it is not a known
problem, building the latest tagged release from our git repos works
fine on my Debian/jessie box. 

I build packages with:
debuild -i -us -uc -b

HTH, otherwise I need more information if you want to build a source
package or a binary package and where your source comes from.
