debuild is a frontend to dpkg-buildpackage as well as other bits....taken
from it's man page

  "debuild  creates  all  the files necessary for uploading a
       Debian package.  It first runs dpkg-buildpackage and  then
       runs  lintian  on the .changes file created (assuming that
       lintian is installed).  Parameters can be passed  to  both
       dpkg-buildpackage  and  lintian,  where the parameters are
       separated by the -L or --lintian  option.   The  allowable
       options  in this case are --no-lintian to skip the lintian
       step and  the  --preserve-envvar/-e  or  --preserve-env/-E
       options  described below in the Environment Variables sec­
