I think you got the question wrong?
buildd (and sbuild and wanna-build) are not packaged because configuration
is a bit difficult and not easy to do automatically. That is, there are
packages built from CVS (some weeks ago), they do work somehow, but you
still have to configure a few things by hand. Even if you only want to use
sbuild to build packages with source-depends, just experienced that myself,
I am not completely happy with it yet. If you want to try those (not updated
for a while though), contact me privately, I do not want to announce them
for general use, as they are completely unoffical.

BTW my power-up converter was in my appartment yesterday, its working and my
Amiga seems to boot ok, as far as I could hear :-)
