Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.50
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

The cross building support in Debian has been rewritten and part of the
changes included stopping the tools from overriding the MAKEFLAGS
variable in order to allow CC_FOR_BUILD to identify the correct compiler
to use for internal build tools during a cross compile.

The effect of this in CDBS packages is that DEB_CONFIGURE_SCRIPT_ENV now
prevents cross compilation because it sets CC etc. and the tools no
longer set an override.

Please can DEB_CONFIGURE_SCRIPT_ENV be set to empty in CDBS so that CDBS
packages can be cross-built successfully?

Patch for 1/class/autotools-vars.mk.in attached that unsets
DEB_CONFIGURE_SCRIPT_ENV if cross compiling.
