The other cpl-plugin-* have the same problem.

This is a packaging bug in cpl-plugin-*:


If you want to do that (-indep), you also have to call dh_gencontrol with -i.

Anyway, I'll add a workaround into p-c-d.

This bug was fixed in the package pkg-create-dbgsym - 0.68

pkg-create-dbgsym (0.68) wily; urgency=medium

  * dh_gencontrol: If the binary package's DEBIAN/control does not exist, skip
    the binary package version adjustment instead of setting an empty
    Version:. This fixes the FTBFS of cpl-plugin-* which have
    "override_dh_gencontrol-indep:" without calling dh_gencontrol with "-i".
