Packages are always targeted to Debian unstable (at least by default :)
For previous versions of Opennebula, we always started to build cleanly in 
unstable (aka sid). Latter on, when package enter testing (aka wheezy - future 
stable release) we can think about backporting [1] it to stable (squeeze).

No, you should not try to build a package in squeeze right now. If you want 
something "backportable-aware", you can use :
Build-Depends: libxmlrpc-c++4-dev | libxmlrpc-c3-dev

[1] Backports are recompiled packages from testing (mostly) and unstable (in a 
few cases only, e.g. security updates) in a stable environment so that they 
will run without new libraries (whenever it is possible) on a Debian stable
