I came back too late to be aware enough to provide a good answer to
this, but it seems to me that it's been an accumulation of GUB and
build issues and possibly also changes in build environments that made
building binaries too fragile.

These build system issues have already been reviewed for submission; do
you mean we lack policy regarding backporting changes in the build
system to stable branch?

Sure. There have been several developers recently involved in GUB and
the build system, so now it's time to seize the fruit of this work (as
we say in French) to roll releases again, possibly without slowing down
too much on GUB work! That said, convergence may take some more time.
