[Build-common-hackers] Bug#342892: Incompatible with make 3.80+3.81.b3-1

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.32
Severity: serious


 Cdbs breaks for some packages when upgrading to make 3.80+3.81.b3-1.
 This make version explicitely has incompatibilities with previous
 versions, I'm afraid this has to be fixed on the side of CDBS.

 The problem I encountered was with the gst-plugins0.8 packages, when
 "dh_installdirs -p" has been called for all binary packages, I get a
 make error saying it can't find the install target.
    make: *** No rule to make target "install",
    necessary for "binary/gstreamer0.8-plugins". Stop.
 In previous builds, or when downgrading to a previous make version,
 the following command would have been run:
    dh_installdocs -pgstreamer0.8-plugins debian/README.Debian NEWS

 Hence, I believe that the incompatibility might be due to this
 expression in debhelper.mk:
    $(patsubst %,install/%,$(DEB_ALL_PACKAGES)) :: install/%:

 I'm not versed in Makefiles, but if I can provide more information, let
 me know.
