I wonder then the change happened, as this used to work fine until
not too long ago.

The current behaviour makes it a pain in the ass to update e.g. a
windowmanager, when actually using that windowmanager when rebuilding
the package.

If it stays this way, it should be documented on, as
I think many others will also stumble over this problem.
