Bug#737632: autopkgtest: adt-run builds packages differently to the buildd
> However, dpkg-buildpackage also defines env vars like
> $DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH these days, which some packages use but don't

that would mimic the buildd case and sounds like a good solution to the
problem to me. autopkgtest would then also benefit immediately from any changes
to dpkg-buildpackage that were driven by policy in the behaviour of the clean
target, environment etc.
