syncterm package fails to build on Ubuntu

Have attempted to put a version on the maintainers launchpad PPA but the package attempts keep failing to build. On a Debian i386 system, the build results are put into directories that include the hardeware platform as part of the directory name. Done in debian/rules by setting a variable & then using that variable in the install lines. That works during a build on a debian system. On a Ubuntu system, it does not; neither my test systems nor the build systems at launchpad. The command being used to get the hardware platform (line 9) does work from the command line.

HwB ITA accepted into Debian

Received an email [1] advising that my new Hardware Book package (HwB 1:040412-3) had been accepted into the Debian repository, which also closed the ITA [2].
