Which version of make is installed in the autobuilder environment?
If it is the same that is installed in the sid chroot on
raptor.debian.org (3.80), then the responsible is probably make. In
particular, vim's debian/rules uses 'export' target specific variables,
for example:

  install-stamp-%: export DH_OPTIONS=-p$*

Apparently they were not supported in earlier version of make. (And no,
I was not aware of this non-backward compatibility, otherwise I would
have set an appropriate build-depends).

You can check if they are supported or not looking at 'info make' and
searching for 'Target-specific Variable'. If they are supported you
should see in the first screen something like:

  or like this:


If they're not supported, could you please try to upgrade the version of
make to the latest in unstable and try again the build?

Alternatively, it would be enough to install it on raptor's sid chroot.
I will try it. (I believe you're that chroot's maintainer ...)

Thanks for the report.
