O, please do tell me how to install my build dependencies using fakeroot.

I sort of doubt it. Between krb5 1.2.2-4 (builds fine for alpha and
is currently in testing) and krb5 1.2.2-5, I made no source changes.
In fact all I did is remove some debconf templates, simplify the
postinst/config script and depend on krb5-config in the control file.
That shouldn't break alpha builds.
Neither that package nor any of my other recent uploads (or uploads of
other MIT developers) have been built for alpha, even when previous
versions of the package built fine.
If the package fails to compile, it would be nice if the autobuilders
could get around to sending a build log within a month (it's been
waiting 32 days to go into testing). In the past I've been prompt
debugging architecture problems once I'm aware of them.
