The proposed change changes a macro. That means the resulting code is 
different, no matter if the change comes from a patch or debian/rules. 
Consider this "a patch in debian/rules".

Allow me to try another way to see this issue, please see my next mail (to

Without us [Free Software developers], people would study computer science
and programming without ever having seen a real program in its entirety.
That's like becoming writers without ever having read a complete book.
