I don't know what you did, but that file is in the 5.3.17 tarball.


To build the debian packages, I untarred the tarball that is on the
ftp-site, cd'd into the coda-5.3.17 directory and ran 'debuild' which
does the whole thing right.

Maybe you need to run 'fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage -b', which I believe
is what debuild is using.
