Mea culpa, but already fixed in the SVN version of vim. The current
related debian/changelog line is:

  vim (1:6.4-004+2) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
    [ Stefano Zacchiroli ]
    * debian/rules: finally found the karma of target-specific variables,
      hopefully the file is clearer now ...

I will detail it more, explaining that it fixes the FTBFS on hppa.

I think it's related to some difference in debhelper and/or make, but
there was indeed some messed up interaction among debian/rules variable
and environment variable due to a misuse of 'export' in debian/rules.
Now it should be fixed (i.e. it used to be broken on my laptop as well,
with the same error as hppa, but now is fixed).

Have a look at the SVN diff on debian/rules for moreinfo.
