missing-build-depends-for-clean-target-in-debian-rules

The specified condition must be satisfied to run the clean target in debian/rules.

Please add a suitable prerequisite to Build-Depends (and not Build-Depends-Indep) even if no architecture-dependent packages are being built.

The condition you see in the context is not a recommendation on what to add. If you see a list, more than likely only one member is needed to make this tag go away. You probably also do not need the :any multiarch acceptor, if you see one.

For more information please consult:

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 131c0f4. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/rules.
