The last one.

I never notice such problem. That rather seems like a bug in our 
tooling. Can you please point to some reference, or report it if you’re 
able to reproduce it (I can’t).

See above (i.e., not sure).

No. “Depends:” in d/t/control should only contain the additional 
dependencies needed to run the tests. It helps noticing, e.g., a missing 
package dependency (“Depends” in d/control) during the tests. 
@builddeps@ is like a WMD that helps when the tests needs so many 
packages that it’s a PITA to synchronize everything. Few packages, if 
any, on top of the usual three (phpab, phpunit, pkg-php-tools) does not 
qualify as a good use of this WMD.

Done, but please, do not CC me, as per our lists CoC.
