Check in the neighborhood of line 223 of debian/rules:

    221         dh_undocumented
    222         dh_installchangelogs
    223 # stripped modules refuse to load on Alpha
    224 ifeq ($(ARCH),alpha)
    225         dh_strip -Nxserver-xfree86
    226 else
    227         dh_strip
    228 endif
    229         dh_link

Off the top of my head I don't know how to write a compound if statement in
make (and my GNU make manual is at work), but this should give you enough
to work with.
