Debian packaging updates

Now is the point in the Debian release cycle where I usually try to go through my packages and bring them generally up to date. In case other people are doing the same thing, here are a few new facilities or techniques that I'm rolling out across my packages. (This is apart from the obvious stuff, like multiarch where appropriate and debhelper 9, and the older stuff, like using dh.)

It's also worth mentioning that Ubuntu was responsible for breaking a lot of ground here. Due to bug reports and patches submitted from Ubuntu, several of my packages already had hardening build flags and --as-needed issues fixed before this round of packaging refresh, which made adding these features much easier than it would be otherwise.
