Bug#629385: Request for TC to rule on a course of action for supporting build-arch
 
Hearing no objections, I call for a TC vote on the following ballot:

A. dpkg-buildpackage, when doing a binary-only build (-B), should probe
the package with "make -qn" to see if the build-arch target appears to
be implemented. If so, it should use "debian/rules build-arch" to
build the package instead of "debian/rules build". If it detects via
"make -qn" that the target is missing, it should output a warning
asking the packager to implement the required targets, and then fall
back to using "debian/rules build".

The fallback to "debian/rules build" and the "make -qn" auto-detection
are temporary to ease the transition but should be dropped at some
point (wheezy+1, or wheezy+2).

Debian Policy should be updated to make build-arch and build-indep
mandatory targets.

B. Further discussion
