I am trying to build a test case for this, but there does npt seem to
be a good way to add a “non-native package using overlay” scenario in
that module. I don't even see a “non-native package” starting point.

My attempts began with refactoring the ‘deb.TestBuildpackage’ class
to extract common elements of each test case. Please feel free to
merge those changes.

I was not able to figure out how to make a test case function
‘TestBuildpackage.test_non_native_buildpackage’ that would correctly
test that scenario. Lacking that, I don't even know how to begin
making a similar scenario ‘test_non_native_with_overlay_buildpackage’.
