Debian provides porter box for that purpose. This means if your package
FTBFS on s390 you can login to a s390 porter box, use sbuild to set up a
build environment, fix the problem and then check the package now build

Now compare with reproducible build. You get some error report you
cannot reproduce, do some change following the help provided and
hope for the best. Then some day later you get the same error
