No, dpkg-buildpackage does not install build dependencies, it just
checks whether they are satisfied.

What the buildbot could do (and maybe does), is to run

     apt-get upgrade

at one point.  This is important to get the target into a current state
in general.  If it does, we could just upload a newer version of
build-essential into extras-devel that depends on maemo-optify.

This is quite a correct way to go about this, I'd say.  The mess results
from the SDK repo not being identical to extras-devel (which I would
call a bug in itself).

To reduce the mess, we should probably first put a version of
maemo-optify and the modified build-essential into the sdk repo and make
a SDK release.  We can then still put newer versions of maemo-optify
into extras-devel.

So, does the auto-builder run apt-get upgrade?
