Most of them, but I am not 100% sure.

I started with packages generating both arch:all and arch:any. At some
point Lucas Nussbaum checked all packages in unstable generating at
least one arch:all binary (i.e. he considered pure arch:all packages
as well). From that point I started to check the same set of
packages in testing.

So if there is any package left in unstable which does not build with
"dpkg-buildpackage -A", it has not propagated to testing for some
other reason.

I prefer not to build or report in unstable because it is a lot more
difficult to do it right.
