Okay, understood. Sorry for being a bit bothersome here. I think I have
to learn a lot more how the internals of Debian are put together - I'm
even wasn't aware that uploads are not (re-)build by buildd if there is
no need to (and of course especially not before passing the NEW queue).
I assumed anything uploaded is (re-)build by an automated system and
thus the build necessarily needs to work without local hacks.

BTW: Not saying "it's ready", yet. There were too many last minute
changes recently and I feel like giving the packaging an other 24h to
settle down is a good idea.

Okay, great. I just re-added the Build-Depends: on php-symfony-icu and
re-enabled the tests, since there really then is no need to keep them
disabled any longer.
