this is your friend :) [above] 

trying: libusb
skipped: libusb (118+16)
    got: 16+0: a-16
    * alpha: gphoto2, gphoto2-dev, gtkam, gtkam-gimp, libgpio-dev, libgpio0, pencam, xsane

so it doesn't enter because it would break all of these packages

My suggestion would be to file bugs against these packages so that they get 
rebuilt with the new version of libusb.

I've learnt it the hard way that bad shlibs will screw testing bad.
Fortunatelly it only did that for one package :)
