[Python-modules-team] Bug#793333: pylibmc: FTBFS: tries to remove directory not found in package build dir

Package: pylibmc
Version: 1.5.0-1
Severity: serious

While preparing the transition for python3.5 in Ubuntu, we found that the
pylibmc package was failing to build.  The reason for this is a debian/rules
override of both dh_python2 and dh_python3 that tries to rmdir some
directories from the build tree.  However, with current dh_python2 and
dh_python3 these directories are never created, so the rmdir is failing.

The attach patch fixes the build failure, which I've confirmed to be
reproducible on Debian unstable - hence filing as severity: serious.

  * Drop debian/rules overrides to remove directories that aren't there.

Thanks for considering the patch.
