Hi everyone.  I’ve had a conversation with the arm64 buildd maintainers and it
turns out that buildd always chooses the first alternative in an OR dependency 
to have deterministic behaviour and results.  Regular apt considers all build 
dependencies equally.

They suggested either a manual upload to kick things off, or to apply a tweak
to the build-deps for arm64 which can be removed at a later date.

Patch is attached.
