Would it make sense to run the build under auto-apt, to see whether it
tries to access some file in another package? That would obviously not
be a replacement for the BDFH, since some particularly nasty tools
install stuff into .d directories (so unless they are installed, they
are never accessed), and it might generate a few false positives, but it
could be another data source.

Also, you could look at the atimes of the other packages after the build
to see whether stuff has been used.
