I tried to build kdebase, after changing the start page to refer to
gnewsense.  The build failed (the last time :) ) with:

install -p -D -m644 debian/debian-kde_default.png
install: cannot stat `debian/debian-kde_default.png': No such file or
make: *** [binary-install/kdebase-data] Error 1

Indeed, that folder exists, but the file does not.  Can anyone shed some
light on this?

P.S. The hack I came up with was a
kubuntu_33_kubuntuify_then_gnewsensify_about.diff , where the upstream
file is kubuntu_33_kubuntuify_about.diff .  That was the only way I
could guarantee it would run in the right order.  Now, it would be nice
to see if it works.
