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.
