all of a sudden builds are failing for me that have been working fine just the
other day.

the error i'm getting is this:

+ exec rpmbuild -ba --define '_srcdefattr (-,root,root)' --define 'disturl
snowglobe' --eval %suse_insert_debug_package
error: Package already exists: %package debugsource

what is going on there?

Everything is alright. You have %debug_package in your .spec file,
but which is already automatically added by BS and standalone tools
like lbuild-jplus and Fedora's rpmbuild.

Many a Packman packages suffer from the same problem that you always
have to remove that offending line beforehand.
