Bug#347160: libubit-dev: uninstallable; depends on removed xlibs-dev

Package: libubit-dev
Version: 3.6.4-4
Severity: serious


  This is a serious bug filed against your package because it
  depends on xlibs-dev, which as announced in [1] a while ago, is
  no longer available in sid. This makes your package uninstallable.

    [1] http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2005/11/msg00022.html

  To fix this bug, you should update your Depends field and substitute
  xlibs-dev for the list of individual X development libraries that this
  development package needs to depend on. These would be the sum of:

    (a) X libraries providing include files that are #included by any
    	public header file of the package

    (b) X libraries that need to be present when statically linking
    	against this package. To find out these:

	- if you ship a .la file, the X libraries referenced in the
	  dependency_libs variable

	- if you ship a .pc file, the X libraries referenced in the
	  Requires, Libs, and Libs.private fields

	- if not, the X libraries mentioned in the output of:

	    objdump -p *.so | grep NEEDED

	  where *.so are all the .so files shipped in the package.

  Thanks for your collaboration!
