This looks correct. Builds of ibus on Linux will build-depend on
libwayland-dev, builds on non-Linux will not.

This also looks correct. The binary package ibus-wayland will only be
built on Linux architectures.

Include dpkg's default.mk ("include /usr/share/dpkg/default.mk", or use
architecture.mk instead if you would like to avoid also setting CFLAGS
and other useful variables), then use:

...       # Linux things here
...       # non-Linux things here

Run dpkg-architecture to see other variables you can use.

telepathy-mission-control-5 is an example of a package with optional
Linux-specifics (we build with NetworkManager support on Linux only):
