While I wholeheartly welcome adding such a script, I am surprised why
it is made so complicated and hard to read.

Is there a reason for dpkg_late_eval? And why all the ?= in

Why not simply

CFLAGS := $(shell dpkg-buildflags --get CFLAGS)

and so on in buildflags.mk and

DEB_HOST_ARCH := $(shell dpkg-architecture -qDEB_HOST_ARCH)

and so on in architecture.mk?
