I've never seen a package that tries to set the description of its
debuginfo subpackage. I don't know what's changed to make it not work,
but it isn't necessary. Feel free to remove.

Hrm. That's fairly obnoxious. I would say just patch out the parts of
the code that do this (result in a different filename). There's
certainly no need for it after install.
