Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.56
Severity: wishlist

I suggest adding --add-missing to automake args, unless user explicitly
disables it by setting DEB_AUTOMAKE_ARGS herself.

--add-missing just causes automake to add missing files, so it should be
harmless in every situation, and can be helpful when processing code that
doesn't include those (e.g. autoconf might later fail due to missing install-sh
or so).
