Not if the B-D is versioned, unfortunately.

It’s actually wanna-build that’s the problem here. But as soon as
you introduce build profiles, wanna-build on dpo completely chokes,
so please don’t do that.

In the current case, it’s a simple matter of either dropping that
Depends (as already recommended) or someone doing a porter upload
of the involved packages.
