FTBFS?  Dunno, but I'm not the only one using exports:


And even:

Maybe I'm missing something and DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS case is
different than other environment vars related with hardening like the
compiler flags, or maybe the export has been deprecated or rendered
unnecessary, or never required but all of these documents/folks do it
even if it's not necessary... but I don't think that using "export" is
wrong at all and much less causes FTBFS.

Another thing is if, with the current aptitude debian/rules is
necessary or not.  I just wanted to raise awareness in the case that
it was an issue and the hardening was actually not happening.
