That's strange, I could not get this warning with lintian 2.5.0 (just
installed from unstable). And I see no patches for config.{sub,guess} in
the kildclient_2.11.0-1.debian.tar.gz file, it only includes the normal
files in debian/

But I'll take a look at the mentioned tools nevertheless.

Anyway, if some DD is thinking about uploading this package, please
wait. I've submitted a quick fix for the FTBS bug 555000 to Dominic
Hargreaves as per his offer in that bug report, so I'll prepare a new
version soon.

Is that the recommended way, or should I keep hoping that one day the
pkg-config files for gtk+ will not list so many libraries as
dependencies (that aren't really dependencies)?
