Any hint?

Possibly the problem is that the build-dependency on a virtual package which is provided by multiple real packages.

binary dependencies are enforced by Policy to always be on real packages first, only as fallback on a virtual package. This is not enforced for build-dependencies but the underlying problem of undeterministic behaviour in case of multiple solutions is similar.

...or perhaps (and hopefully!) it is simply lack of updating the package cache in the build environment. What is it? cowbuilder with sid + experimental suites?
