  Mine (Lintian v1.23.5) does twice:

E: xdesktopwaves source:
depends-on-build-essential-package-without-using-version gcc [build-depends:
N:   The package declares a depends on a build essential package without
N:   using a versioned depends. In general a package should not depend on
N:   build essential packages but if it must do so, the depends should have
N:   a version string.
N:   Refer to Policy Manual, section 4.2 for details.

depends-on-build-essential-package-without-using-version libc6-dev
[build-depends: libc6-dev]
