If it's considered severity: serious, I could add this to my archive
rebuilds to detect future regressions.

However, in several cases, it seems that the problem is that
sbuild does not install packages in Build-Depends-Indep when doing a
source-only build, and then fails when doing 'debian/rules clean'.
I wonder if that should be fixed in sbuild.
