I am huge fan of both building in clean environments _and_ being able to build twice. I don't think there is any solution to this other than testing it in an automated fashion. An sbuild or pbuilder option for --build-twice would make testing a very simple matter.

Or a dpkg-buildpackage option, so that you don't have to implement in each and every dpkg-buildpackage wrapper. Unfortunately #671074 wasn't well-received by dpkg maintainers.

Does policy say anything about this?

Can it in fact be deemed FTBFS if it fails the second time? I think it should.

We've always treated "FTBFS if built twice in a row" bugs as important:
