I stand corrected about this simple case. I am not sure why this
approach failed for me in a number of places.
This still leaves the question of who is responsible for setting CC. The
options presented thus far are dpkg-buildpackage, dh_auto_build and the
source package. In the absence of consensus on this question, the third
option is a safe choice. So that's what I am using now. Alas, I do see
room for improvement here.
