Have you read the current definition of build-essential?

     It will not be necessary to explicitly specify build-time
     relationships on a minimal set of packages that are always needed to
     compile, link and put in a Debian package a standard "Hello World!"
     program written in C or C++.
How would you change this so that it is still unambiguous and it includes
debhelper?  (Please don't even consider mentioning debhelper explicitly.)
