one would expect that it works this way, any many people before you were
surprised by this fact. The problem is that build-indep and build-arch
are not required targets, and there is no easy way of checking whether
they exist.

It was suggested to make these targets a requirement, but so far nobody
dared to push the issue:

Maybe now, with the DEP process, this is something that could be
tackled? I for one would very much welcome such a change.
