At least one buildd maintainer signs successfull builds but apparnetly
ignores failed ones. After random intervals (usually several months)
all failed builds are requeued whether they should be or not.
Requesting a specific requeue works with a week or two delay at times.
I've been filing most of the ftbfs bugs for that architecture.
