I would rather use apt-get source, and then dpkg-buildpackage inside the
sudo-1.8.9p5 directory, but that's basically the same.

So if it's a test issue, you can probably at least override the failure
by setting

export DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck

That being said, it would be better to just fix the failures.  Try to
run the test programs by hand, check their output, run in a debugger,
check where it starts going wrong, etc.

That's not a problem: patches are applied with the -p1 option of the
patch command.
