The only patch I know of from Debian which hasn't been included upstream 
is the ipv6 one (which has been "postponed" I think).  Any others you 
have, can you split them off and send them to bugs@freeciv.org?  You 
could try checking http://rt.freeciv.org/ to see if there's already a 
ticket for it, and if so include it under the original ticket.

Only the gui-gtk-2.0 and gui-win32 clients have this functionality.  So 
freeciv-client-gtk should probably depend on freeciv-server.

One other thing you might look at is the packaging of tilesets and other
