OK, I've added that dependency back. I've duploaded a replacement, but I
haven't changed the version number because I think it's better not to
when it hasn't been released yet.

I also tried running autotools-dev's autogen.sh, but that resulted in a
lintian report:

P: roxterm source: direct-changes-in-diff-but-no-patch-system po/Makevars.template

so I thought I'd better avoid that for now. I'll replace my bootstrap.sh
with it in future upstream versions though.

I thought the autotools were supposed to generate self-contained
tarballs. I must have got the wrong idea.
