I think it is more likely to be a testcase that sometimes fails
randomly, because I always have the same environment (provided by sbuild)
and it does also fail randomly for me.

Ok, as I think there are still some misunderstandings, here goes the
long explanation:

There was really no "dpkg-buildpackage -A" issue here.

I'm just checking that "dpkg-buildpackage -A" works.

When the package is "Arch: all" (like this one) and "dpkg-buildpackage -A"
fails, I use the build log as an evidence that the package FTBFS in the
usual sense, because in such case "dpkg-buildpackage -A" and
"dpkg-buildpackage" are just equivalent.

The only exception is when there is an absolutely trivial bug in
debian/rules, like binary-arch and binary-indep being swapped, but all
those bugs are already reported.

Is this usual FTBFS what I intended to report here, not any bug
of "dpkg-buildpackage -A" type.

Great. The random failure is reported here:

Thanks.
