Thanks for taking the time to respond. Now, maybe someone else can give me a
useful answer. Let me rephrase the question:
AFAIK, I cannot install packages on a d.o machine to satisfy build
dependencies, because I don't have root permission. pbuilder with appropriate
sudo permissions for all DDs would suffice, but it is usually not installed.
So, is there any alternative for installing packages to satisfy build-deps
other than sending email to debian-admin?
If I'm being dense and the answer is obvious, I'm comfortable being told I'm
dense, as long I'm also told the obvious answer. If the answer is "no", I'd
also like to hear someone just say so.
