Ok, I can do that, no problem :-)

But when I try to build the package it fails .. I am not quite on top
of this at the moment (been some time since I have done this).

To build I just do

sudo dbuild -us -uc

in the svn directory octave-audio/trunk/ and I get 

This package has a Debian revision number but there does not seem to be
an appropriate original tar file or .orig directory in the parent
(expected octave-audio_1.1.1.orig.tar.gz or trunk.orig)
continue anyway? (y/n) n

Isnt the octave-pkg-dev script supposed to fetch the tarball for me or
am I misunderstanding how to build the package?
