The question is not so much about whether it is dead or not, but how one 
would integrate it into cdbs.  One way to address it manually is:


(or some other target -- I'm not sure).

The alternative of a proper cdbs integration would be creating 
rules/buildinfo.mk, so users would have to write:

include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/buildinfo.mk

Note that this is actually *more* typing than the manual solution.  Is 
that better?  I'm not sure.  I'm certainly open for it, but it seems 
silly to be frank.
