(This is still about compiling Pd-vanilla on two Ubuntu Studio laptops)

I solved the dependencies by installing the following libraries -before 
running the script- on both Ubuntu 14 Trusty and Ubuntu 16 Xenial laptops:
sudo apt-get install libjack-jackd2-dev
sudo apt-get install portaudio19-dev
sudo apt-get install equivs
sudo apt-get install debhelper

Next I ran the script of IOhannes line by line

export LANG=C
sudo apt-get install devscripts
mkdir -p build
cd build
dget -u ${MAINREPO}/p/puredata/puredata_${PDVER}.dsc
cd puredata-${PDVER%-*}
echo 9 > debian/compat
I changed the line "debhelper-compat (= 12)" in debian/control into 
"debhelper (>= 9)"
sudo mk-build-deps -ir

And when I ran the following command "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot" 
there was a problem on both laptops, "No targets specified and no 
makefile found." I checked and in the folder build/puredata-0.50.2 there 
is a Makefile.am file. This is the printout after the "dpkg-buildpackage 
-rfakeroot" command (exactly the same for both laptops):
