okay, then indeed, the first step should be to just include all packages that
would build on any arch with no build profile active.

At least we now know that doing so should not break anything, so we can go
ahead and put such a change in dpkg-genchanges. This at least will fix this
particular problem.

For a check whether a new upload adds any packages that should go to NEW, the
existing Package-List field should be considered instead of the Binaries field.
As we see through this bug, the Binaries field is not expressive enough.
