pd-cyclone is a long-form dh package that is a wrapper to a very
complicated Make build system. pd-cxc is in
git.debian.org/pkg-multimedia. It is a library without depends that are new packages. It builds on my i386, but it did not build on the launchpad amd64 build machine, it died on this error, which has stumped

It looks odd to me that you use no debhelper tools in the binary- arch
target - only in the binary-indep one.

Thanks, that was the key.  This now builds on i386 and amd64 and is
ready to go.

The git repository is not fixed.

I am not sure I understand. What I see on git.debian.org is the same as what I have on my machine, and I used git-buildpackage to make the source package to submit to Launchpad:


Also, why do you use long-form debhelper?

Because I didn't see a way to do it with short-form. This library has a very elaborate build system that I've tried for years to figure out. Instead I've found the best way is to wrap it into something more understandable, and long-form seemed the easiest way to do that.

I am open to changing it to short-form, but I don't see a clear way to do it
