Really? When I tried to install the build-depends (in my otherwise
minimal chroot), it failed because the new arch-independent xlibs(-dev)
depends on the split-out libX(-dev) packages, which don't exist yet. I

xlibs(-dev) failed to upgrade. I don't see how the autobuilders are
going to manage this, unless they can downgrade xlibs(-dev) too...
