Bug#4525: dpkg-buildpackage assumes file protections and shoots self in foot

Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.4.0

The umask for my account is set to 077.  Those portions of dpkg-buildpackage
which run as root create files with protection set to 600 and owned by
root.root.  Because of this, the non-root portions of dpkg-buildpackage
cannot access the files debian/files and debian/substvars, generate error
messages saying these files cannot be found, and dpkg-buildpackage dies.
