[Build-common-hackers] Bug#627735: dh_installgsettings should run after dh_install

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.93
Severity: important


the current dh_installgsettings integration is broken, as
dh_installgsettings is run *before* dh_install.

See the code in dh_installgsettings:

	# Get a list of the schemas
	my $schemas = `find $gsettings_schemas_dir -type f \\( -name \\*.xml -o -name \\*.override \\) -printf '%P '`;
	if ($schemas ne '') {
		addsubstvar($package, "misc:Depends", "dconf-gsettings-backend | gsettings-backend");

If dh_installgsettings is run before dh_install, $schemas will be empty and
the dependency on on gsettings-backend via misc:Depends is not

I'd suggest running dh_installgsettings at the same time when dh_gconf
is run, as dh_gconf has basically the same logic.
