Getting bbwin central config mode on Debian Etch

Background information: We have an install of Big Brother BTF, an
install I inherited when I took the job a few years ago. Recently I
discovered the unfortunate fact that we're not covered by the BTF
license, so we are exploring other options. Hobbit seems to be our best
I am using another server to build up a Hobbit configuration. I
installed it from the source tarball because I couldn't get the bbwin
central config patch to apply against the debian source package.
I started looking into the Hobbit 4.3 snapshots, but I haven't been able
to get them to build using 'debian/rules binary'. Just a few minutes
ago I got an idea. I unpacked the pristine 4.2.0 source, applied the
allinone patch, applied the bbwin patch, and then ran 'debian/rules
binary'. This successfully built packages.
First question - will these packages built from patched 4.2.0 work
properly? Second question - anything I can do to get the Hobbit 4.3
snapshot (2008/06/05) to build? Error output from my attempt to build
debian packages below:
