Oh it was fixed, my bad. But there is a large commit that changes many
things at once (d634143), and the change was hidden there.

Indeed, the makefile is quite convoluted. It also can't handle it when
the user passes CFLAGS and other variables. Also, it sets -j4

On further inspection, the package seems to bundle the pddp source.
Are riddle, sickle and ViCious more code copies? We should not use
code copies. We need to avoid using them.

I don't really prefer short form, but it is just a matter of using
override_dh_foo targets.
