Really?  A 4.3.0 pre-release for experimental built just fine on ARM. 
Well, it's building now, we'll see what happens.  And 223633 is a
kernel-package issue...

Really?  When I tried to install the build-depends (in my otherwise
minimal chroot), it failed because the new arch-independent xlibs(-dev)
depends on the split-out libX(-dev) packages, which don't exist yet.  I
had to downgrade to sarge, install, then re-upgrade, and of course
xlibs(-dev) failed to upgrade.  I don't see how the autobuilders are
going to manage this, unless they can downgrade xlibs(-dev) too...
