They are not eliminated by using only buildds. They are only moved
towards people that want to build their privately patched software
then, which is something they have a right to do. A package not
building properly or differently when built in a clean system with
all the build-depended packages installed and all the
build-conflicted packages not installed is a critical bug.

Recreating binary packages uploaded by maintainers has some merrits,
but this is definitely not one of them...
