It was a grave bug in some early versions of xutils-dev.  On the general
principal that serious bugs in other packages shouldn't result in
versioned dependencies on the fixed versions unless there's some important
reason why people might have the old version (such as having it release
with stable), I'd say that the build-depends are fine and he just needs to
upgrade to the current xutils-dev.  The bad one never got out of unstable,
I'm fairly sure.
