[Build-common-hackers] Bug#288806: cdbs: support for perl modules that use Module::Build

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.49
Followup-For: Bug #288806

Just overriding DEB_MAKE_INVOKE doesn't work for me. It fails when the
makefile class tries to run $(DEB_MAKE_INVOKE) -k $(DEB_MAKE_CLEAN_TARGET)

Instead I've made the attached patch which provides native support for
Module::Build including code to detect which build system is used by
prefering Build.PL over Makefile.PL.
