Dmitry, Helmut

First, thanks for this insightful thread, even though it goes beyond my expertise I
learn about cross-building then :)

Indeed it did fix the issue :)
I set "Build-Depends-Indep: python3-sphinx:native" and built with pbuilder on testing.
But I'm having other problems later on, not related to sphinx though (some of them
probably x-build related).

I don't have enough time to go any further right now, but anyway the issue regarding
sphinx is actually fixed.

A final question, would you recommend sbuild rather than pbuilder?
Especially when trying to cross-build packages ?

Thanks Dmitry and Helmut for your help :)
