i do not use the debian version , i use the debian rules included in
the util-vserver source to build debian packages :)

do you know a way to debug this ?

because having old tools with new kernel break the isolation you cannot
use old tools with new kernel, only old kernel with new tools. If you do
then most of the time the guest loose part of their isolations and your
host become vulnerable. Building it is not the issue but rebooting with
the new kernel and the old tool will break.
