Re: FTWCA Policy Section 7.6 (Build-Depends/Build-Depends-Indep)
Quite a number of the Debian Perl packages are on this list. How shall we
handle this. I can (and mostly have) take care of the ones I am most
responsible for but should I use some spare time to fix others?

I've listed all the packages that list dbs, cdbs, dh-make-php,

2106 source packages are affected, which rules out any mass bug filing.
I've instead setup a dynamic (regenerated once a day) list of the
packages with this bug on people.d.o. Also note that most of those
problems are already reported by lintian (at least for the usual patch
helpers, debhelper and cdbs).
 pbuilder asks you to install Build-Depends if you miss them, but do
not ask for B-D-I (and it *is* the right behaviour), and then
builds can fail.
