The Deb packages were mising a dependency on "build install" from the
binary target - this fixes that, and cleans up some inconsistencies
elsewhere in the rulesets.

Traditionally, Debian packaging uses a file called "build-stamp" (or
"install-stamp", etc) in the main source tree.  The initial deb package
support for Git tried to move this "build-stamp" file into the debian/
directory, but some instances were missed.  That problem, however, was
incidental - the real fix is the missing dependency mentioned above.

(version 2 of this patch.  I missed an early commit in v1 that made the old
patch impossible to apply.)
