Have you checked the buildlog to see whether MySQL support is enabled or

Also try building grass, vtk7, or any of the other affected packages.
Both grass & vtk7 FTBFS in my sid pbuilder chroots.

For the record, mysql-defaults (1.0.5) has been uploaded to unstable and

default-libmysqlclient-dev now depends on libmariadb-dev-compat instead
of libmariadbclient-dev.
