Sorry for the reopening, but this bug is still present in version 0.5.0+git1.656f8865-5.

This is the way it fails now:

 debian/rules build-indep
make: Nothing to be done for 'build-indep'.
 fakeroot debian/rules binary-indep
# initramfs stuff:
install -D -m 755 debian/initramfs/hooks /<<BUILDDIR>>/multipath-tools-0.5.0+git1.656f8865/debian/multipath-tools-boot/usr/share/initramfs-tools//hooks/multipath
install -D -m 755 debian/initramfs/local-top \
install -D -m 755 debian/initramfs/init-top \
# reportbug:
for pkg in "multipath-tools" "multipath-tools-boot"; do \
    install -D -m 755 debian/reportbug/script debian/${pkg}/usr/share/bug/${pkg}/script; \
 dpkg-genchanges -A >../multipath-tools_0.5.0+git1.656f8865-5_all.changes
dpkg-genchanges: error: binary build with no binary artifacts found; cannot distribute
dpkg-buildpackage: error: dpkg-genchanges gave error exit status 2

I can diagnose this for you: This is what I found in debian/rules:

binary-indep: build-indep install-indep

but the target is empty otherwise.

Since there is no dh_builddeb anywhere in such target, no architecture
independent .deb is created at all.

Please do actually try "dpkg-buildpackage -A" before considering this
fixed, you don't need any special tools for that, nor you need anybody
else to do it for you.
