Ok, what about this, I make a dpkg-genbuilddeps and a patch to debuild so
that it *optionally* runs strace only if the user provided "--genbuilddeps"
so that the functionality can still be used for initial creating of a
build-depends line.
(It's just that I bet that we never get build-depends if maintainers are
forced to guess them theirselves w/o automatic help)

debuild would then spit out a package_version_i386.builddeps file which
can be compared by hand with the build-depends line the package has already
in the dsc file. (of course this file won't get uploaded etc)
