I followed your suggestion and ran dpkg-buildpackage.  That still gave
me the errores but the output showed me that problem was debian/rules
assumed a target "distclean" in the parent directory's Makefile.  The
actual target name was "cleanall".  Once I modified debian/rules for
that, things worked remarkably better.

Again, sorry about the whining.
