Currently, the "Check why" link on packages.qa.debian.org/postbooks
takes me to the testing.pl link above.  If that testing.pl script has a
lot of known issues, then maybe the "Check why" link should be removed?

Where did you see that?  The buildd suggests it was built successfully
on i386:

https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=postbooks&arch=i386&ver=4.9.1-3&stamp=1441624363

postbooks-updater has
- a build dependency on the dev package from postbooks, debian/control
explicitly states:
       libxtuplecommon-dev (>= 4.9.1)
- a runtime dependency on one of the shared libs from postbooks, it is
added in debian/control by ${shlibs:Depends}

postbooks binary itself suggests postbooks-updater

Do I need to update the postbooks-updater package to use something more
than just ${shlibs:Depends} ?
