dh: Support debian/rules calling make with -B
That is useful to avoid issues with phony implicit rules (see bug #509756). Apparently make treats the name of the Makfile as an automaticall set up target, so this causes it to try to build the Makefile even though it's up-to-date, and the implicit target makes it run 'dh debian/rules'. So, make that a no-op. (cherry picked from commit 378b377ef732119de4c2a08dcb9721500b017da1) Conflicts: debian/changelog dh
