I've been keeping an eye on the buildd stats a bit and so far GNOME 2.6

The buildds often try to build packages before they can install (or even
have tried to build the required versions of) their build dependencies and
take time (and perhaps manual nudging) to retry. The best thing you can do
about it is to watch the logs (http://buildd.debian.org and/or
http://www.buildd.net) and send kindly worded messages to the buildd admins
of the port you're interested in pointing them out which packages they
