This happens if you invoke debian/rules directly and not through dpkg-

debian/rules.real does:

    else ifneq ($(DEB_BUILD_ARCH),$(DEB_HOST_ARCH))

So the assumption is that all those architecture variables, or none,
are defined.  dpkg-buildpackage does define them all.

However, debian/rules does:

    DEB_HOST_ARCH := $(shell dpkg-architecture -qDEB_HOST_ARCH)

and does not define any other architecture variables.

We should probably include /usr/share/dpkg/architecture.mk in
debian/rules instead.
