Re: followup to irc conversation about building 7.8 with 7.6

This might be fixed with a call to


in configure-stamp (after the call to dh_autoreconf should be good)

and a 

dh_autotools-dev_restoreconfig in clean, just before


this will allow the deletion of lines
rm -f config.sub

rm -f config.guess
ln -s /usr/share/misc/config.sub .
ln -s /usr/share/misc/config.guess .

and nothing more, since we already depend on autotools-dev.

Peter please confirm the fix works!

Joachim, I'm trying right now to refactor the rules file, I'll let you know how it goes :)

This will simplify (hopefully) a little bit our rules file, but might introduce some regressions, I
guess this is ok for 7.10 ;)
