This would be partially my fault.  I NMU'd 1.4-p6-11 as part of the 
x86_64 bootstrap, with they hyphen per the upstream tarball versioning, 
not realizing the x86 package was versioned 1.4p6 (without the hyphen), 
and bumped the release number due to the addition of Fedora's patchset. 
  When Chuck got around to redoing his packages, his last x86 release 
was 10, so he bumped his to 11, probably not realizing that it needed to 
be 12 because of my x86_64-only bump.

I removed my bootstrap packages in favour of Chuck's to be safe.
