According to the intersection of the debcheck build-depends test and
m86k's Needs-Build [1], this will likely affect gnomesword bibletime
knoda asterisk k3d loop-aes-modules or are these already caught by the

Inaccuracies are caused (at least) by debcheck only using packages
unstable (not incoming etc.) and not treating conflicts.
The latter also leads to the list of packages that could be retried
(i.e. failed for insatisfiable dependencies but this isn't the case
anymore) [2] to be not useful yet, as gnucash shows.
