Removed. I also implemented a get-orig-source target to do that.

Yep, both are machine-generated, using makefile snippets from their
respective directories. I removed both src/manglerui.h and
icons/manglericons.h from the source tarball (and in get-orig-source),
and added a override_dh_auto_build target in debian/rules to recreate
these files during the build.

Removed (and in get-orig-source, of course).

Fixed for the libventrilo packages. However, mangler's description
starts off with Ventrilo, which is a name, so I think it should remain

Partly fixed. dpkg-shlibdeps now throws out 4 warnings instead of
about a dozen. However, if I remove the packages in build-depends that
dpkg-shlibdeps complains about and re-build, I get the following
output during the ./configure step:

checking for speex... yes
checking for celt... yes
Enabled optional CELT support.
checking for xosd_create in -lxosd... no
Optional XOSD support is not enabled.
checking for new_g15_screen in -lg15daemon_client... no
Optional Logitech G15 support is not enabled.
checking for espeak_Initialize in -lespeak... no
Optional eSpeak support is not enabled.
checking for x11... yes
checking for xi... yes

So I reverted my changes. Anyways, at the moment, the only packages I
have in my build-depends are debhelper, autotools-dev, and the list of
packages given here [1].

So, that's 5/6 issues fixed; hopefully that's enough for an upload.
Thanks for taking the time to review my package! :)

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/m/mangler
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/m/mangler/mangler_1.2.2-1.dsc
