Whilst working on the Reproducible Builds effort [0], we noticed
that sysvinit could not be built reproducibly.

This is because dh_fixperms was not being called and so the
permissions of /lib/init/init-d-script and /lib/init/init-d-script
varied depending on the umask at build-time.

The root cause of this was that an override was removed in:


… but the corresponding reference in the list of .PHONY targets was
not also removed.

Simple patch attached.
