Well, it's simple really :) Just do something like this in the build rule:

	./configure --with-one-set-of-options
	mkdir option1-build-dir
	mv src/foo src/bar src/baz option1-build-dir
	$(MAKE) distclean
	./configure --with-another-set-of-options
	mkdir option2-build-dir
	mv src/foo src/bar src/baz option2-build-dir
	touch $@

Of course, in the clean rule, also do

	rm -rf option1-build-dir option2-build-dir

You have to use the -a option for dh_* commands. Put this at the top of the


and then in the line before binary-arch rule add this:

binary-arch: DH_OPTIONS=-a

That should do it...

If something breaks, ask again :)
