As a buildd operator, I just can say "yes" :-) We're busy enough
keeping the free software up to date, so we don't care much about
non-main packages.

Non-main packages are built only occasionally by people that want to
have those packages, so they're often not ported at all or rather
outdated. Of course important things like pgp and ssh in non-US are
recompiled rather regularily.
