Iirc because it is not possible to reliably detect "dpkg-buildpackage
calling build-arch fails because the build-arch is not supported by
debian/rules". You don't want to run "debian/rules build" if
"debian/rules build-arch" failed because of regular build-error.

  * Back out debian/rules build-arch detection.  It is *not* possible *at
    all* to detect available targets in a rules file.  Period.

Bill Allombert's second suggestion (only on -policy) - introducing
debian/rules.version - would solve this issue.
