The build-depends line in the debian control file is probably missing a
reference to mafw and mafw-shared. You have it locally so the program
finds it, but the autobuilder doesn't know to include it and therefore
can't complete the build. Remember the autobuilder only includes the
bareest minimum by default, you need to explicitly include everything
