Bug#168266: dpkg-dev: dpkg-buildpackage -B must call build-arch, not build
Justification: causes autobuild failures of policy-compliant packages
According to current Debian policy, section 7.6:
The `Build-Depends' and `Build-Conflicts' fields must be
satisfied when any of the following targets is invoked: `build',
`binary', `binary-arch', `build-arch', `build-indep' and
The `Build-Depends-Indep' and `Build-Conflicts-Indep' fields must
be satisfied when any of the following targets is invoked:
`build', `build-indep', `binary' and `binary-indep'.
Therefore, dpkg-buildpackage's current behavior of running
"debian/rules build" even when -B is used is broken. This is causing
autobuild failures in at least one package (ddd).
