As I said I have sympathy with the bug report and dropping it would 
simplify debian/rules.

Obviously the reason for the override is to make the build go as fast as 
possbible, but "dpkg-buildpackage -jN" does almost the same.

By the way "DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck dpkg-buildpackage" cuts out the 
testing phase which is quite useful.
