I've read the changelog and the bug report closed by that earlier
change, and removing the version still makes no sense. If earlier
versions of debiandoc-sgml produce incorrect output, as reported, then
the versioned build-dep should be left there, as it will help people
trying to build with older versions to know what the problem is.
