Argh, indeed. Those Debian people are really crazy. For some packages
they have a .orig.tar.gz + a .diff.gz that applies as a patch on top of
it, and for some other packages they have the .orig.tar.gz + a tarball
with the Debian specific files. What a mess...

What about:

   http://patch-tracker.debian.org/patch/series/dl/pmake/1.111-3.2/100_mk.diff \
   http://patch-tracker.debian.org/patch/series/dl/pmake/1.111-3.2/110_mkdep.diff \
   http://patch-tracker.debian.org/patch/series/dl/pmake/1.111-3.2/120_fixes.diff \
   http://patch-tracker.debian.org/patch/series/dl/pmake/1.111-3.2/130_maxpathlen.diff \
   http://patch-tracker.debian.org/patch/series/dl/pmake/1.111-3.2/140_multiarch.diff \

Note that this requires the possibility of getting patches from a
different site than the tarball, but Jérôme Pouiller has submitted a
patch that makes this possible, see "[PATCH] Add support for plain URL
in $(PKG)_PATCH variable".
