From the csound package we have learned that this approach leads to calling doxygen unnecesarily on all architectures on the buildd. On sparc, doxygen currently seems broken, thus the package FTBFS there.

How about making a team policy that doxygen should not be executed on the buildds? That should be of course accompanied with instructions how to implement that advice.

How do we ensure *very* prominently to make the surrounding world (buildd maintainers of possibly broken hardware in particular) aware of such team-wide workaround?

If we do not, then we effectively hide a problem IMO.
