I've applied your patch and had to add also javahelper into Build-Depends because
d/rules includes /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/javahelper.mk from that package.

Then, near its finish, 'pdebuild -- --binary-arch' run failed this way:

   debian/rules build-arch
  make: Nothing to be done for `build-arch'.
   fakeroot debian/rules binary-arch
  make: Nothing to be done for `binary-arch'.
   dpkg-genchanges -B >../androidsdk-tools_22+git20130416~f55ffbb-1_amd64.changes
  dpkg-genchanges: arch-specific upload - not including arch-independent packages
  dpkg-genchanges: error: cannot read files list file: No such file or directory
  dpkg-buildpackage: error: dpkg-genchanges gave error exit status 2
  E: Failed autobuilding of package

This would not be a problem, as in fact there is nothing arch-dependent build should
create, but it's weird.

Complete arch + indep build works fine, of course.

Yeah mainly description of some libraries shared by the tools isn't really verbose.
Their documentation from Google is rather scarce too, so I'll have to dig more into
the source code and try to write down what exactly they provide. I don't feel like
doing it right now, but I'll try to handle it within 2-3 days.

Thank you, experimental upload would be really nice.
