No. File a wishlist bug against the package after checking what bugs
are already outstanding:


$ reportbug apt-build

Generally, if you are sufficiently interested in an orphaned package to
want new features, you should work on those features yourself and
submit a patch then adopt the package as maintainer. If you don't /
can't, it's unlikely that someone else will because nobody else is
doing work on the package - that's why it is orphaned.

Orphaned packages either get removed or get their RC bugs fixed (by
someone interested in the release, not the package) and not a lot else.
If the fix is truly minor (e.g. applying a tested patch), it *might*
get applied by someone fixing other stuff.
