I have also moved to debhelper compat level 9 (the current preferred
version in unstable) and made appropriate modifications.

Yes, and no they do not compile with the new version, but neither do
they compile with the old version of libwfmath-dev using GCC 4.6 or
later, so I consider the point moot.  I have an ITA for those packages
and upstream updates in the pipe.

If have uploaded a new source package to mentors.debian.net at

 wfmath (0.3.12-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * new upstream release
   * new maintainer: Debian games team (closes: #653979)
     - added myself as uploader
   * converted packaging to use dh sequenceer
   * renamed binary packages due to SONAME bump
   * converted to 3.0 (quilt) source format
   * updated Standards-Version to 3.9.2 (no changes required)
   * debian/control: added Vcs- fields
   * refined doc packaging rules
   * added symbols tracking
   * debian/copyright: converted to DEP-5 format
   * debian/rules: regenerated autoconfigury
   * use xz compression for packaging
   * move to debhelper compat level 9
