Bug#749502: mate-screensaver: gratuitous systemd-logind dependency

Package: mate-screensaver
Version: 1.8.0-3
Severity: important
Tags: patch


mate-screensaver has a build dependency on libsystemd-login-dev,
but I notice it's not configured to use it at all:

> dh_auto_configure --parallel -- \
>		--disable-silent-rules \
>		--disable-static \
>		--with-xscreensaverdir=/usr/share/xscreensaver/config \
>		--with-xscreensaverhackdir=/usr/lib/xscreensaver \
>		--with-mit-ext \
>		--libexecdir=/usr/lib/ \
>		--with-console-kit \
>		--with-libnotify \
>		--without-systemd \
>		--enable-locking \
>		--with-gtk=2.0

Would you please consider ideally removing the
libsystemd-login-dev dependency if it's not absolutely needed.
That makes the package accessible to a subset of linux users who
will not be installing systemd (or GNOME) on their jessie systems.

Or if it is needed, please limit it to [linux-any] (see patch) so that
it can build on kfreebsd and possibly other arches.  (And if you
configure --with-systemd, do that only if DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS=linux).
