Yes, the problem remains on both of them.

As I can see the solution is using linux-any at the moment.

It seems reasonable. Fixed already.

Fixed by simply adding double spaces in front of the *.

I would like to keep my first change which was only linux-any. What do you mean 
that the changes to debian/rules are missing? I have made the changes you proposed
and added the reverse one in clean. No more lintian errors. Maybe I'm missing
something here, please enlighten me.

I hope this time everything is fine and the package could be sponsored.

Package re-uploaded to mentors.
