dh_autoreconf_clean is meant to delete whatever was changed by
dh_autoreconf if it is given a script to run instead of autoreconf,
typically either "NOCONFIGURE=1 ./" using upstream's,
or a debian/ containing gtkdocize and autoreconf -fi. The man
page briefly mentions this method, and src:flatpak in unstable is an
example of it in use. Is that a valid approach, or is there a reason
why explicitly deleting the file during clean should be preferred?
I'd like to document whichever one is best-practice a bit more clearly.

It looks as though plain gtkdocize replaces gtk-doc.make with a symbolic
link, which dh-autoreconf won't delete (bug filed), breaking the ability
to build twice in a row; so gtkdocize --copy (which works like I expected)
is probably better, at least until/unless dh-autoreconf can be taught
to remove files that were replaced with a symlink. I've changed flatpak
in git to use gtkdocize --copy.

Helmut: similarly, is there a reason that I'm not seeing why explicitly
removing gtk-doc.make before gtkdocize was necessary, or were you only
doing that as a way to be completely sure that the old one wasn't used, or
was it a workaround for gtkdocize turning the plain file into a symlink?

I can confirm that using the same approach as in src:flatpak (but with
gtkdocize --copy) makes libidn2 build correctly, producing binaries
that should be functionally identical to what the maintainer uploaded
(diffoscope reports only trivial differences). Patches attached.
