It is in a subroutine, &crossbuilddeps, so it is not necessarily called
at the end of emdebuild, the code is just located there.

Which package? It doesn't fail on my builds.

David, when filing queries like this, please do a couple of things:

1. Always run any script with multiple --verbose options to see what the
script is actually doing before posting. emdebuild supports up to four
levels of verbosity so you can run emdebuild -v -v -v ... (the default
is one and --quiet uses verbosity=zero).

2. *Always* state exactly which package is being built and for which

3. Always append to your post the relevant output from the verbose

Thanks, your feedback and comments are helpful and I do want to fix the
issues but I consistently need more information from your questions.

You've probably noticed that my emails tend to be quite verbose, well I
like verbose and I find that things are easiest when others are verbose
when detailing problems too, please.
