Yeah, dh_installsystemd was introduced in debhelper 11, and Ubuntu
16.04 has debhelper 9.  Debian Stretch (stable) only has debhelper 10
--- but stretch-backports has debhelper 11 support.

It looks like Ubuntu 16.04 does have backports, but only to debhelper
10.  So it might be that the simplest way to go is to request[1] an
Ubuntu 16.04 backport for debhelper 11.


Failing that, I can set up some compatibilty hacks to support older
versions of debhelper.  The debian-files target in the debian/rules
file is used to support down-levels of Debian; this is something I'm
doing now to support Debian Jessie builds.
