Good catch. 0.59-4 still crossed, so this is a regression. I have two
minor issues to be found when looking deeper.

The file that fais building (compiletest.cc) seems entirely useless.  I
see no use of this testfunc in startpar.  Dropping CXXSRCS from OBJS in
Makefile should fix this problem as well.

Then replacing $(MAKE) with dh_auto_build is a nice cleanup irrespective
of fixing cross building. When doing so you can also clean the CC=$(CC)
assignment there and the construction of CC earlier. This dates back to
a time when dh_auto_build didn't pass cross tools.
