  * debian/patches/fix-desktop-file.patch:
    + remove MIME type declaration to avoid alarm-clock associating with
      text files (LP: #502871)
  * debian/patches/fix-ftbfs-with-gcc4.5.patch:
    + comment out unused "alarm" variable in src/alarm_runner.h which clashes
      with the alarm() function declared in unistd.h (LP: #626184)
