That's kinda embarrassing. It looks like everything you did was correct.
The issue is with the salsa-ci stuff. To verify that, I suggest that you
actually upload it and see what http://crossqa.debian.net/src/gammu
says, but I do expect that it works there. So your initial attempt
(before contacting us) was correct and salsa-ci made you think it was
not. :-(

So what's the issue with salsa-ci here? The integration was mainly
authored by IOhannes (CC'ed, thanks!). It install build dependencies
using this script:

It uses mk-build-deps and I would have expected the --build-dep option
there as otherwise it would also install Build-Depends-Indep which would
lead to the issue we see here.

salsa-ci.yml also has a ".test-build-package-any" and it seems to also
use that script here which means that it actually installs
Build-Depends-Indep for performing an arch-only build. So I checked the
relevant step for your pipeline and voila:

It really does install python3-sphinx, which is listed in B-D-I for an
arch-only build.

I'm pretty sure at this point that the fault is with salsa-ci and hope
that IOhannes can give some more insight here.
