Bug#32191: dpkg-dev: dpkg-buildpackage options have to be in a certain order

Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.4.1


dpkg-buildpackage will not correctly pass "-B" option to dpkg-genchanges, if
it is not at the end of the command line:

dpkg-buildpackage -ahurd-i386 -B -rfakeroot -nc
dpkg-genchanges will complain about some package of architecture All which
is in control but not in files file.

dpkg-buildpackage -ahurd-i386 -rfakeroot -nc -B

will work without problems.

Note that this is a subtle problem. I don't know enough shell programming to
fix it. dpkg-buildpackage should probably add the options to a shell
variable array and pass that to dpkg-genchanges instead doing some
incomprehensible magic.

"man bash" has some promising text in section "Arrays".
