It is possible to do that by ignoring policy and having debian/rules
build depend on build-arch only and not on build-indep. I remember
pkg-gis having to do that for mapserver many years ago. When
maintainer-built .debs are finally thrown away and the required
handling for arch all packages gets implemented on the buildds, I
imagine the buildds will have to change to using build-arch instead?
