Hmm.  I poked at a few packages, and here is what I found:
golang-siphash-dev does not have any Built-Using header.
golang-gopkg-tylerb-graceful.v1-dev does not list golang-x-text,
although its dependency golang-golang-x-net-dev was built using it.
(I'm looking at unstable.)

Would this be fixable through a mass rebuild?

The dependency-generating script does not end up in Built-Using.
I think we discussed including its version at some point.
