W debian-rules-should-not-use-pwd

All reports of debian-rules-should-not-use-pwd for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The debian/rules file for this package appears to use the variable $(PWD) to refer to the current directory. This variable is not set by GNU make and therefore will have whatever value it has in the environment, which may not be the actual current directory. Some ways of building Debian packages (such as through sudo) will clear the PWD environment variable.

Instead of $(PWD), use $(CURDIR), which is set by GNU make, ignores the environment, and is guaranteed to always be set.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Check: debian/rules, Type: source

Emitted (non-overridden): 1, overridden: 0, total: 1

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
