When installing the latter fails, sbuild launches dose by default to
explain the problem. While doing so, it tends to produce installation
sets that lack build-essential as the former package is not passed to
dose. This issue can currently be triggered by cross building lp-solve.

I argue that the dose3 explainer should ensure that build-essential is
