So how about modifying the wording to say:
The Build-Depends and Build-Conflicts fields describe binary
dependencies and conflicts which must be satisfied when making
the build, binary, binary-arch and binary-indep targets.
The Build-Depends-Indep and Build-Conflicts-Indep fields describe
binary dependencies and conflicts which must be satisfied when
making the binary and binary-indep targets.
