Re: Bug#149486: FTBFS: bad build depends
Hello, I just received a bug report:
This package fails to build from source on the ia64 autobuilder with the
make: dh_testdir: Command not found
It would appear that you need to add a build dependency on debhelper. A
complete build log is available at buildd.debian.org.
I already have this in the control file:
Build-Depends: debhelper (>> 3.0.0)
I have compared this line to other control files on my computer and it
doesn't look malformed. Can anyone see something wrong? I am still in the
new maintainer queue so I can't get into an ia64 machine to do any
firsthand tests, making debugging kind of guesswork.
Looking at the build logs for my other (working) package I see this:
** Using build dependencies supplied by package:
Build-Depends: debhelper, file, flex, libglib1.2-dev, libgtk1.2-dev,
tcl8.3-dev, texinfo, xlibs-dev
I do not see this in the build logs for simpleproxy, which implies that the
Build-Depends line is not working correctly.
This is probably something stupid on my part, but I need some more eyes
looking at it because I just don't see anything... :-)
