Generally our interest in eigen3 is very very low. We are forced to maintain 
eigen2 since KDE needs it. But at the moment KDE does not need eigen3 so we 
are very slow to respond to your calls for sponsorship or review.

I've just looked at your debian/rules. You seem to use dh in a very odd non-
standard way. dh is typically used as a sequencer for "minimal rules" + 
overrides so please stick to that. Also dh would allow you to get rid of 
stamping clutter. What's more, ${BUILDDIR} does not seem like makefile syntax. 
debian/Changelog_upstream looks odd too as it's something that upstream should 
maintain rather than debian maintainer.

If we ever have to care about eigen3, the packaging should be as simple as 
possible. Currently I'm not sure I really like what I see in debian/rules 
alone (haven't looked elsewhere). debian/rules could be reduced to ~10 lines 
without too much effort.
