I wonder what's the point of cross-building the arch-indep packages at all?
In jansson case, it looks like python-sphinx should be moved from Build-Depends
to Build-Depends-Indep, and the arch-any packages will be correctly cross-built
without sphinx.

If there are other cases except jansson, please let me know. Though I can't
imagine how sphinx can be used for building something arch-specific…

(Also, if I just apply the change you suggested, sphinx will FTBFS on some
archs, because the tests use webkit which segfaults there — so it's a bit more
