That doesn't work.  If you don't have a debian/compat file, cdbs will 
write one, which will since recently be level 5, which will indeed blow 
up your build because it is geared to level 4 but that fact is not 
written down anywhere.  You need to

echo 4 >debian/compat

and remove the DH_COMPAT business.
