This risks serious practical problems.  If your package is routinely built
with a compiler other than the Debian default, problems which would arise
from doing so can go easily undetected.  Someday, someone else will need to
upload your package (e.g., the security team), but the package could fail to
build, fail to work or change in subtle ways.
