Bug#32318: dpkg-dev: dpkg-buildpackage doesn't stop on errors

reassign 32318 dpkg-dev
retitle 32318 dpkg-dev: dpkg-buildpackage doesn't stop on errors

It's actually a bug in these lines of dpkg-buildpackage:

withecho debian/rules build
withecho $rootcommand debian/rules $binarytarget
if [ x$binaryonly = x ]; then
        $signsource "$pv.dsc"
withecho dpkg-genchanges "$@" >"$chg"

Nowhere are there any checks for whether the commands succeeded.
