All reports of debian-rules-missing-recommended-target for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The debian/rules file for this package does not provide one of the recommended targets. All of build-arch and build-indep should be provided, even if they don't do anything for this package. If this package does not currently split building of architecture dependent and independent packages, the following rules may be added to fall back to the build target:

      build-arch: build
      build-indep: build

Note that the following form is recommended however:

      build: build-arch build-indep
      build-arch: build-stamp
      build-indep: build-stamp

build here

These targets will be required by policy in the future, so should be added to prevent future breakage.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 4.9 (Main building script: debian/rules) for details.
