I would make sure you are Build-Depending upon a new enough debhelper;
some versions were buggy until recently. The earliest non-broken
version is 8.9.10, though at this point >= 9 is probably best.
To test outside a buildd, run "dpkg-buildpackage -b" to check that it's
working correctly in addition to plain dpkg-buildpackage.
