Read that again!
The output you quoted quite clearly shows dpkg-buildpackage
running debian/rules clean before dpkg-source!
dpkg-buildpackage: source package is unicode-character-database
dpkg-buildpackage: source version is 3.2.0-1
dpkg-buildpackage: source maintainer is Durk Strooisma <email@example.com>
dpkg-buildpackage: host architecture is i386
fakeroot debian/rules clean
make: Entering directory `/local/appl/unicode-character-database'
rm -f build-stamp
make: Leaving directory `/local/appl/unicode-character-database'

dpkg-source: warning: source directory `./unicode-character-database' is not
