Hi Daniel,

(note that messages sent to the bug number aren't sent to the submitter.
You should Cc the submitter in such cases).

Alternatives in build-dependencies are not supported by sbuild, and are
a bad idea in general (because your package might end up being built
against different packages on different arches).
