there were two (suspected) reverse dependencies: debian-cd and
debian-installer. i filled bugs against both beginning of june. turns
out, debian-cd is not using isohybrid. debian-installer is the only
package using it.

10 weeks should be enough, even for debian-installer, to add a simple
additional build-depends.

patch attached.

no need to overcomplicate things: debian-installer calls the 'isohybrid'
command which is in bin:syslinux-utils instead of bin:isolinux. adding
syslinux-utils to build-depends as you do for any other packages you are
using during the build is enough.
