    - support DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=noopt
    - upgrade config.{guess,sub} during build using autotools-dev
    - add the usual --build/--host stuff as per autotools-dev documentation
    - debian/menu: modernize menu section (menu-item-uses-apps-section)
    - use dh_prep instead of deprecated dh_clean -k
    - hercules.doc-base: use appropriate section
    - don't ignore errors from make distclean
