This information confirms that the build failed, but it does not give
any hint why it failed.  Please provide enough of the build log to show
what failed or, if you cannot figure out what that is, then the whole
build log.  (You can save the build log to a file named "log" with
"dpkg-buildpackage >log 2>&1)
