I checked, and dh currently doesn't support build-arch and build-indep at all internally (you need to add the rules yourself). I've made a patch to add proper support which I'll submit once I've tested it. I've submitted a proposed change to Policy to require the use of these targets (#604397), but we need at least 50% coverage first. But, we'll get that as soon as dh and cdbs support it. We also need a lintian check to warn if these targets are missing; but I'm not at all familiar with hacking on lintian. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
