For the first issue I think you'll need to rebuild twice, once with
the current version and once with the new version. For things that do
not build with the current version, they need to have an FTBFS bug
filed against them.
The second issue seems like an sbuild setup issue.
For rsyslog issue, I think you can ignore that as 8.16.0-1 is only in
unstable because the newer version cannot be built on hurd-i386
because it added a build-dep on lsof, which FTBFS on hurd-i386.
