I agree that this was not to hard. However, I did not understand your
motivation to work behind a perfectly working clean target which was
fully functional by using autotools-dev, dh-autoreconf. So I deleted
your part of debian/rules changes.

I noticed that now the plugin for amd64 is not builded and needed to
tweak debian/rules a bit by detecting the build architecture. Hope this
will work now for all archs.

As I said, this was unnecessary.
Thanks in any case for your help
