ok, bad wording on my side: it doesn't crash, the build is killed after 150
of inactivity. Probably because licensecheck has to analyze a lot more
files because of this bug - that's fair so i won't open a new bug.

Well, that would be caused by
Build-Depends: @cdbs@

which gives
Build-Depends: cdbs,

after refreshing control file with
DEB_MAINTAINER_MODE=1 debuild clean
