Bug#837489: Only a binNMU is required

Hi Adrian,

Balint requested that the antlr package drop the separate
libantlr-pic.a and the non-PIC libantlr.a currently shipped.  This
requires a change to debian/rules, and so is sourceful.  The
discussion is included in this bug report.  Also, I would like to get
the package out of SVN (in fact, that has been the hold-up on the
upload, since the migrate script the Java team normally uses fails to
migrate this package - I'm ready to "gbp import-dscs --debsnap antlr"
and call it good).

Thank you,
