Rather, I suspect the issue is that Rules-Requires-Root is set to "No"
rather than "no". AFAICT, only "no" has been defined and it is
interpreted case sensitively.
Presumably, this could also be fixed by using the correct case for "no".
@Guillem/Dpkg Maintainers: Should we provide stricter validation for
this to stop this at dpkg-source build time ?
