debuild ignores dpkg-genchanges hook

Bug #1065201 reported by Maciej Malycha on 2012-10-10

Bug Description

The hook dpkg-genchanges described in man is ignored by debuild - both when specified as command line option --dpkg-genchanges-hook and configuration option DEBUILD_DPKG_GENCHANGES_HOOK. All the logic seems to be in place, only the code reading hook value is missing. I found it in Debian, devscripts-2.10.66, but exists also in development. Attached patch fixes the problem in revision 126 of lp:ubuntu/devscripts branch.
