As I recall, the issue is that geogebra now depends on the Icedtea Java

Thanks. Just to know: were I supposed to understand this from the error
I received ("Updating geogebra makes 1 non-depending packages
uninstallable on kfreebsd-amd64: geogebra-kde"), or the fact that I'm
receiving a completely unrelated error is to be considered a bug?

It's not completely unrelated, and it's not a bug.

If the new geogebra package were to migrate to testing, the kfreebsd-amd64 geogebra-kde package in testing would become uninstallable. That's simple cause and effect - and I'd argue that geogebra and geogebra-kde aren't unrelated. :-)

In this particular case, there are at least two things you could do to deduce the problem locally:

- diff the control files for the testing and unstable versions of your package on kfreebsd-amd64 and check whether any of the differences are relevant (e.g. your adding of a dependency that doesn't exist on that architecture)

- grab the testing and unstable packages files for kfreebsd-amd64 and do (air code, but I think it's basically right):

  - grep-dctrl -S -! geogebra packages.testing > packages.testing.new
  - grep-dctrl -S geogebra packages.unstable >> packages.testing.new
  - edos-debcheck -explain -checkonly geogebra < packages.testing.new
