Let the Debian package build on non-x86 platforms #429

Add the missing development packages for binary Python extensions that Labgrid depends on.
This is needed for non-x86 platforms to build as there are no platform packages available for them on PyPI. I tested it on armhf with buster and stretch.

The binary exclusion that was added yesterday is now only applied for two packages that make the build fail otherwise. With :all: the build fails as well because there are source dist issues with at least one dependency.

debian: add build dependencies for Python extensions
There are no platform wheels available on Python for non-x86 platforms.
Add the minimum missing dependencies to build the Python packages' extensions.

Signed-off-by: Bastian Germann <>
debian: exclude only cffi and numpy binaries
The package will not build with all wheels disabled because e.g. the hpack
source dist has an encoding bug in its It reads HISTORY.rst as
ascii while it has a non-ascii character.

I had hoped to have less random python binary problems by rebuilding all packages at the cost of some build time, but that seems to be futile...
So I'm fine with manually managing the list of excluded packages for now.
I've also changed the commit subjects to fit our conventions.
