I'm not > sure when that changed, but I believe it's doing the right things now. And, as a Stupid And Clueless Maintainer, I have to say that, up to now, I just blindly adopted what lintian suggested to me....assuming that Those Who Know know what they're doing and that adding these target is What Should Be Done...:-) Or, even more simpler, I try to use dh7-style minimal rules files and let debhelper handle all the magic..:-) Still, nearly each package of mine I worked on recently had the "issue" of not having build-arch and build-any, so I suspect this is the case for many pkgs in the archive.
