Using `dpkg-buildpackage` is not a requirement to build Debian packages.
If using `fakeroot debian/rules binary` starts to give different results
than running `dpkg-buildpackage`, some maintainers are likely to have
bad surprises.

Pushing for such a change is much larger than the scope of the
reproducible builds effort. Feel free to work on it, though!
