This is caused by a #include <linux/config.h> in include/linux/netfilter_bridge.h. Removing it fixes the bug. Debdiff follows.

Well, I'm so silly. The package has surely been rejected by soyuz as the distro in the changelog is unstable...

I modified the diff to use a patch system as suggested by Daniel. Waiting for upload ;)
