I just tried this:

  git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/collab-maint/sptk
  cd sptk
  debian/rules pre-build DEB_MAINTAINER_MODE=1
  fakeroot debian/rules clean DEB_MAINTAINER_MODE=1
  debian/copyright_newhints debian/copyright_hints
  debian/rules pre-build && fakeroot debian/rules clean

...which doesn't fail - even repeating last line several times.

Please provide a minimal set of commands to reproduce.
