It's probably missing a comma: xterm, ttf-bitsream-vera<----------- add
',' here.

I had the same problem

        If, like me, you get an error similar to this:
        dpkg-deb: parse error, in
        file /home/dano/Desktop/pd-build/Pd-0.40.3-extended/packages/linux_make/build//DEBIAN/control near line 8 \package pd-extended: Depends field, syntax error after reference to package zlib1g make: *** deb Error 2
        then there is a comma missing after a dependency. Open the
        Debian control file, look through the dependency list on line 8,
        and add the missing comma(s) after the referenced package in the
        error, in this case "zlib1g":
