No problem Mike. I have seen all your email just now, anyway ;-)

By the way, I suggest you spend a little time looking at pbuilder, it improves/simplifies the building process a lot.
In Wheezy it is not much of a problem to build using dpkg-buildpackage because binutils is unlikely to change.
But in Jessie binutils changes from time to time and if you want to move to the new binutils version, you would be forced to remove most of TDE packages, due to the strict dependency of libr0 to binutils version.
With pbuilder/pdebuild you can rebuild TDE using the new binutils version in a separate environment, then just upgrade binutils and all TDE packages at the same time without problems.
There are probably other ways to do the same thing, but I found pbuilder really straightforward once you hav eset it up.
