sablevm and squeak-vm needs a sourceful upload as they build-depend on
libffi4-dev. I just filed the bug on squeak-vm as it was introduced after
doko filed the bugs.

What tool do you use do identify the list of packages to bin-nmu? is
there already a (dedicated) tool that checks dependencies on all arches?

(I ask because several of the packages listed above already have a
dependency on libffi5 on i386 (virt-manager or streamtuner for example))
