I did some further investigation. Apparently mkinstalldirs is in the
orig tar ball. However, when the build failed the first time,
mkinstalldirs is somehow removed. When the build is restarted it fails
to install/create deb packages because that file is now missing.

If I start the build from scratch with the patched files (so no build
error), mkinstalldirs is present, and everything proceeds as expected
including installation and the creation of the deb packages.

Sorry to make you think there was a problem. I do find it curious though
that mkinstalldirs seems to disappear if a previous build failed. Please
ignore the problem, it seems to be human user stupidity ;-).
