FYI with the recent discussion, Bill Allombert completed the patch
that was supposed to implement this and I just merged it.
That said, this should not forbid you to decide that there is a better
way to do it and I'd be happy to merge a patch that changes
dpkg-buildpackage to fallback to some auto-detection mechanism if the flag
This would allow maintainers to use those targets without having to
explicitly add the flag.
