This is outside my area of expertese, but I would assume that the
buildds don't automatically re-try a failed build. Instead, they'll wait
for the package to change, hopefully for the better. Most problems are
due to bugs in the package. Automatic re-trying would make sense for
problems in the buildds themselves, but those are fortunately pretty

The thing to do, then, is to figure out what the actual problem is, and
then either fix it in the package or ask the buildd admins to re-try the

If you're a DD, you should have access to all or most architectures we
support. (In theory, all of them, but sometimes we fall short of that
goal.) If you're not, then see http://db.debian.org/machines.cgi if
there are any machines of the desired architectures that are accessible
by non-DDs, or ask here or on one of the architecture specific lists if
someone can provide access to one. Or see if there's an emulator
available you could run on your own system.
