You might want to fix the build dependencies first.

dpkg-buildpackage: host architecture is s390
 /usr/bin/fakeroot debian/rules clean
debian/rules:11: /usr/share/dpatch/dpatch.make: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/share/dpatch/dpatch.make'.  Stop.


I'm not going to accept an upload to t-p-u that makes off-point,
substantial changes to the build rules.  Pushing this from unstable to
testing might be doable, but being free of severity: serious FTBFS bugs
is an obvious prerequisite.

Moving patches around like you have here also makes it more difficult to
use tools like interdiff and debdiff to review the changes.  This is an
absolute non-starter for t-p-u; for unstable->testing propagation, it
means I'm likely to let the source age in unstable for a bit before
pushing it in, since I don't have the time to fully review the changes
