My very limited debhelper knowledge
suggests that the debian build processes
tries to automatically select a buildsystem

It sometimes chooses poorly.

I think one can override that with an
an explicit --buildsystem specification
in the files (possibly --buildsystem=none,
since the mythtv rules has explicit
build instructions when I last skimmed
