Varies widely from a few days to never.

It is not a matter of how long... but if everything is met on deps and
then it builds correctly. Some packages are at the end of the chain in a
long series of deps... there are a few packages... that are still
waiting since early last month (that *I* know of).

Recently Evolution wasn't installable in testing, dunno if it is still
that way or not... but in Unstable it's been 1.4.5-3 for quite a while.
