You can probably do everything you need from debian/rules, since that
is a Makefile. Otherwise you probably end up introducing a patch
system, making a patch the makes the Makefile, and generally making
life more complicated than needs be.  If you already are using quilt
or dpatch, then I guess it does not matter, and you might send a
Makefile upstream.
