Source: monotone
Version: 1.1-9
Severity: serious
Tags: patch


The monotone package FTBFS with debhelper/11.1 as it has an
empty build target.  This is caused by debhelper had a bug in its
handling of "explicitly defined rules targets" that has now been

Previously, this happened to work because dpkg-buildpackage would
invoke "debian/rules build" (which would be a no-op) followed by
"fakeroot debian/rules binary".  During the binary target, dh's
suboptimal handling would run the build commands.

In the given case, monotone has an empty "build"-target to work around
rather old Debian practises.  Any supported version of Debian no
longer need these work arounds (as far as I remember), so I have
included a patch to remove said work arounds.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
