I'm not sure whether britney should or should not consider this (on
one hand it would be better pre-emptive QA, on the other it can make
it harder to transition for reasons that can be fixed a posteriori).

Still, if you want to do that, I would like to advertise that
edos-debcheck, starting from version 1.0-7, has introduced the
"edos-builddebcheck" command line tool which is able to check for
unsatisfiable *build*-dependencies.

The implementation is kind of hackish (it is based on plain
edos-debcheck, plus some package name mangling from Sources to
Packages), but it works nicely.
