Yeah, that's a good point.  It may be best to amend Policy to require
space-separated options.  This makes command-line usage slightly more
annoying, but I'd support it.  Anything in Policy that clarifies the
syntax of DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS would be a Good Thing.

I still like my makefile snippet, posted earlier, which parses
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS and sets a DEB_BUILD_OPT_FOO for every "foo" word.
It allows you to use 'ifdef' in the rest of debian/rules, which is much
more natural than ifneq(...) or ifeq(...) with the empty string.
