Yes, actually it does a bit more: the old one failed to install the upstream
I just checked that it cross-builds correctly too, dh is smart enough to
disable the testsuite on cross builds like the old d/rules did.

Good point, did it and re-uploaded to mentors (same URL).

I do believe that such entries are spam that is counterproductive and hides
* debian/compat is implied by migrating to dh
* updating standards is something every single sane sourceful upload does
(lintian screaming at people helps here)
* Homepage is just moving around stuff that used to be in debian/copyright
Thus, I'd prefer to avoid useless entries. Of course, if giving up on this
cosmetic issue would let me mooch an upload from you, I'll concede.
