I tried building this here (testing; libcurl-ssl is installed), and hit a
problem with the build dependencies.
Fair enough, libcurl-dev wasn't installed, but the problem persists on
installation of libcurl-ssl-dev (but 'debuild -d' helps). So either:
* gkrellm-newsticker should Build-Depend on libcurl-dev | libcurl-ssl-dev
(versioning as already given in its debian/control file), or
* libcurl2-ssl should provide libcurl2;
libcurl-ssl-dev should provide libcurl-dev;
and an appropriate bug report should be filed.
Checking other packages (in unstable)...
These Build-Depend on either:
It looks as if both logjam and gkrellm-newsticker have it wrong, *but* I
think that it'd be easier to use the Provides option.
(For some reason, packages.d.o doesn't seem to want to return 'came' in the
package search results...)
