[Build-common-hackers] Bug#663082: Should not silently change definition of $libexecdir

the latest changes in cdbs redefines how $libexecdir is set.
This will cause hundreds of FTBFS, which is not acceptable.
While I don't agree that /usr/lib is a good default for $libexecdir the
change in debhelper/dh was at least done by only setting this new
behaviour when bumping the compat level which is an explicit action by
the package maintainer.
I just had a couple of build failures because of this change (mostly
gnome related packages, where we use CDBS extensively).
Please revert this change for now.
If you want to follow through with this change, please do an archive
wide rebuild first, to get an idea how many packages will FTBFS and do a
