A package should never be failed due to a missing (not yet compiled)
package. Thats what "Dep-Wait" is for. If you see any packages failed
due to missing build-depends contact the buildd admin imediatly (thats
wanna-build state failed, not a maybe-failed from the buildd logs).
games/foobillard_2.9-2: Needs-Build [optional:out-of-date]
Previous state was Building until 2004 Apr 17 09:17:33
foobillard is not failed nor is it stuck. Looks like the s390 admins
have been working on it.
