Ubuntu 10.10 latest VBox from svn.
/trunk/src/VBox/Installer/linux/debian rules binary
Any idea how to get around this issue? Debian lenny will complete with 
the error but does bark about it.
Looks like the issue is being generated by VBox as the control file has 
the exact information that dpkg-deb: is complaining about.

dh_md5sums: Compatibility levels before 5 are deprecated.
dh_builddeb --destdir /
dh_builddeb: Compatibility levels before 5 are deprecated.
dpkg-deb: parse error, in file 'debian/virtualbox-4.0/DEBIAN/control' 
near line 2 package 'virtualbox-4.0':
