Even if "dpkg-buildpackage -A" works on alpha, that could be not enough.

Our Arch:all autobuilder runs amd64, not alpha.

What I would do here is to convert the package to a pure Arch:any or
Arch:alpha package, without Arch:all tricks to distribute the files
to other architectures. IMO, those who really need the files
outside an alpha machine will figure out how to get them.
