Can you tell us what these changes are? Currently nightly source
packaging is broken while configuring zlib.

Here is what I am seeing:

    $ cd /path/to/gdb/sources
    $ ./configure --target=i386-pc-linux-gnu
    $ make configure-host configure-target
    checking for strerror... yes
    checking for unistd.h... (cached) yes
    configure: updating cache ./config.cache
    configure: creating ./config.status
    config.status: creating Makefile
    config.status: executing default-1 commands
    ./config.status: line 1191: ./../../ No such file or directory
    Makefile:10001: recipe for target 'configure-zlib' failed
    make: *** [configure-zlib] Error 1
