It means there's a package builder that will try building your package
after you upload it. It'll generate haddock documentation this way.

Some build problems are not easy for you to prevent, like missing C
libs. In this case NewBinary failed to build (due to a mistake in
NewBinary's haddock markup) so Crypto also fails to configure.

At the moment the package build stuff is not especially helpful to you
as a package maintainer since it only gives you feedback after you've
made the release and it doesn't automatically email anyone.
