[Pkg-pascal-devel] Using FPC backports to build src package

Some advice please!

I am about to release a new version of tomboy-ng and should use the 
newer FPC/Lazarus in Testing to make my Source Package.

So, I added backports to my Bullseye installation and installed FPC 
3.2.2 and Lazarus 2.2.2 (thanks Abou!). However, because I have in my 
package's dependencies, thus -

Build-Depends: .... fpc (>=3.2.2), lazarus (>=2.2.2)

And the FPC and Lazarus from backports identify themselves as fpc-3.2.2 
and lazarus-2.2, *debuild fails the dependency check*. I have confirmed 
this by manually editing my control line (successfully) to -

Build-Depends: .... fpc-3.2.2 (>=3.2.2), lazarus-2.2 (>=2.2.2)

So, finally, my question - should I just use a Testing install to build 
my source package ?
