Typically I would attack this problem by simply removing the versioned
depends on debhelper, and seeing what breaks when I do so.
Sometimes I have had to hack packages not to build stuff I don't need,
for instances, the info documentation for coreutils won't build with
texinfo on stable, so I disabled it ;-).
