The packages are built in unstable, where debhelper 9.20160702 already
was. However debhelper was/is set to remain 20 days in unstable
(contrary to the usual 5 days) before migrating to testing (stretch).

I still think it's better to use new tools as soon as possible, in order
to find possible bugs. In this case there was a new debhelper feature
requested by a wine user who, like you, had issues with the -tools packages.

The current debhelper hopefully migrates to stretch on July 29th.
