That is pretty interesting to know.
I believe that's caused by calling dpkg-shlibdeps without
setting the appropriate LD_LIBRARY_PATH?

Anyway, you can (sort of) see my progress at

All my bugs with build problems start with "FTBFS:"
to make them stand out.
There is quite a lot of them, about 200 open right now, 
and quite many of them have patches.
But I haven't gotten around to sending patches to all yet.

There are many unresponsive maintainers, which some of 
them I took the liberty of doing an NMU. But I can't just
fix everything by doing an NMU on every package...
