Some packages pull ~200 other packages (on top of the minimal build
environment) through BR's during building. Do you really expect
packagers to check the versions of all packages being pulled and
compare them with the actual packages in the repos?

One thing that could be done to reduce the pain is to explicitly
indicate the buildroot overrides (as if they are coming from a
different source repo) in root.log. Is this possible? Right now there
is no way to tell where BR's come from without manual checking.
