As I slowly rebuild all the php pecl/pear packages in 16.04, I hit the

dpkg-gencontrol: error: bad line in substvars file
debian/php-mf2.substvars at line 2
dh_gencontrol.pkg-create-dbgsym: dpkg-gencontrol -pphp-mf2
-ldebian/changelog -Tdebian/php-mf2.substvars -Pdebian/php-mf2 returned
exit code 25
debian/rules:4: recipe for target 'binary' failed
make: *** [binary] Error 2

I took a look in the schroot:

# cat debian/php-mf2.substvars 
Binary file debian/php-mf2.substvars matches
phpcomposer:Debian-require=php-cli, php-common
phpcomposer:Debian-require-dev=phpunit (>= 3.7), phpunit (<< 3.8~~)

I think line 2 is from grep? Not sure why it happened, but I see a clone
+ grep in an strace.
