Can you explain? How do I patch debian/rules to prevent CDBS from
running certain debhelper scripts?

Emdebian packages must not have debian/copyright, debian/changelog,
ChangeLog, AUTHORS, README, NEWS, TODO or any other text-based content
that is not directly executed by the package code
itself. /usr/share/doc will not be available either.
dh_installdocs, ..examples, ..man, ..info, ..changelogs as well as
dh_shlibs (because we are cross-building). e.g. a shared library only
has files in /usr/lib, nowhere else.

How do I achieve this in CDBS?

I don't see how I can do this reliably without replacing debhelper.mk.
