GNUstep team maintainer (Closes: #453437).  Move Gürkan to Uploaders
and change his email address (Closes: #675222).  Add myself.
(Build-Depends): Require debhelper >= 8, add dpkg-dev (>= 1.16.1~) for
hardening support.  Remove version requirements for libgnustep-gui-dev
and libpopplerkit-dev.  Drop gnustep-make.

(d_app, optim, LDFLAGS): Define.
(build-stamp): Pass all relevant flags to enable hardening.
