It would be very nice if you could add support for DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck [1]
(example included, but I can provide a patch if needed).  It helps for example
in situations when bootstrapping new ports (as I am doing now with
OpenRISC/or1k).  Same goes for "noopt" and others, but I guess that these are
implemented indirectly by dh.

Also, I saw that you are disabling some optimisations in debian/rules... are
these not autodetected somehow?  If Enlightenment uses this library heavily (as
it seems the purpose), perhaps there are significant speed/power improvements
missing when disabled in capable processors.  I saw in the changelog that they
were disabled a while ago, but it does not explain why.

I guess that you know all that and did it for a good reason, but I mention it
since the same that I was wondering now, other people might do in the future.
Perhaps you can add some comments explaining why they are disabled... but well,
just a suggestion.
