Currently, debian/rules makes some additions to CFLAGS, including the
use of `getconf LFS_CFLAGS` for large file support on i386.

However, it then includes /usr/share/dpkg/buildflags.mk, which wipes out
these changes. This causes all previous CFLAGS changes to be wiped out,
including large file support. I can see the consequence of this in the
build log when I build i386, where CFLAGS is missing

If I understand your intent correctly, simply moving the buildflags.mk
include to the top fixes this. Proposed patch:
