Bug#955829: cinnamon-session: unnecessarily Build-Depends on deprecated dbus-glib

Package: cinnamon-session
Version: 4.4.1-1
Severity: normal
User: pkg-utopia-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: dbus-glib-deprecation

dbus-glib is a deprecated D-Bus library with some significant design
flaws, and is essentially unmaintained. As announced in [0], I would
like to minimize its use, and eventually remove it from Debian.

cinnamon-session Build-Depends on libdbus-glib-1-dev, but doesn't seem
to check for it or use it anywhere, so the Build-Depends can probably
just be dropped.

If cinnamon-session has other uses of dbus-glib that I have missed,
please see [0] for how to proceed.
