Maybe the real issue here is that the build-depends dependency

That's one of the many reasons why that section of the page is
It also shouldn't mix runtime and build dependencies, and shouldn't
care a hoot whether build-dependencies exist in testing or not. In
fact, it probably shouldn't care if they exist in unstable, to be
honest, as they have no direct relevancy to migration.
Anyway, I think my original point remains
Your original point seemed to be that you'd "worked out" that
ia32-libs-dev not being in testing on kfreebsd-amd64 was somehow
affecting the wine-unstable packages. What I've been trying to do is to
point out to you why you were mistaken in what you believed that page
showed, before you wasted any further time attempting to fix issues that
don't exist. :-/ (The failures on amd64 and powerpc do matter, otoh).
For the dependency
analysis to be unambiguous like in this case, it needs to be
on a per-arch basis.
Indeed. If you'd started from that point and not mentioned any of the
confused kfreebsd-amd64 stuff, my original response would probably
simply have been "patches welcome" and we could have left it there... ah
