Dear maintainers,

In Ubuntu, we've applied the attached patch to the acpid package to enable
cross-building.  The dh_auto_configure command has built-in support for
cross-building with autoconf, but your debian/rules bypasses this in order
to pass additional CFLAGS.  This patch reworks the approach to use the newer
DEB_CFLAGS_MAINT_{APPEND,PREPEND} interfaces and avoid overriding
dh_auto_configure at all.

Note that debhelper compat level 9 is required in order for
dh_auto_configure to consider the dpkg-buildflags output.  If this is not
acceptable, you can get a similar result by invoking dh_auto_configure --

The changelog entry for this Ubuntu upload is:

  * Bump to debhelper compat level 9 and use the
    DEB_CFLAGS_MAINT_{APPEND_PREPEND} options to change flags, trusting
    dh_auto_configure to do the right thing, so that we get support for
    cross-compilation and other niceties.

Please consider applying this patch in Debian,

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
