This is nothing to do with Build-Depends. This is simply informing the
archive what *happened* during the build. The obvious case is when
someone Build-Depends on gcc-4.5-source (a binary package), they should
then tell us in the control file of their Binary packages that they used
gcc-4.5 (the source package) and the exact version they used. This
means that we'll ensure that we hold that version of the source around
correctly until we no longer need it. It has no effect on the
end-user's system, it simply allows us to automatically ensure GPL
compliance (and means we're doing the right thing)
