debhelper and GPL


While conducting routine reading, I saw that debhelper is released under
the GPL license. Since debhelper includes bits of itself in the package
it manages, does this mean that I cannot use debhelper for packaging
something that would be GPL-incompatible? I know that for fonts, one has
to make exceptions stating that PDF documents embedding GPL fonts are
not covered by the GPL, why should it be different for debhelper?
