The most recent upload of glibc to unstable has introduced a libc-dev
dependency which is in conflict with the sbuild configuration on multiple
buildds.  As a result, libstdc++-dev has gone missing from these chroots,
and the buildd admin will need to make some changes to restore
build-essential in these environments.

Closing the bug report since this is not a bug in monotone.
