Then it's fine: amavisd-milter is in the BD-Uninstallable state, i.e.
doesn't consume any buildd cpu.

It is useless and would just make people have to request for the
converse when libmilter-dev becomes available, while BD-Uninstallable
already tracks that appropriately.

The buildds are keeping up quite nice nowadays so unsuccessful build
attempts are fine.
