I'm having some (for any Debian Developer surely) trivial problems
with the dependencies: Shishi's configure finds gnutls13 on my local
machine, but Debian doesn't have gnutls13 yet.  So when I install the
packages on another machine, the binaries cannot find gnutls13 and
they won't work.  Can I build my package in a "mini-Debian
environment" that has the build-depends that I specified?  Then it
won't be "polluted" by the libraries installed on my local system.  I
could temporarily remove gnutls13 from my local system too, but it
doesn't feel like a good solution.
