It's usually a good idea to check for things like recent uploads before
accusing someone of being MIA, and taking in to account that people make
simple mistakes sometimes.

In this particular case, you'd have seen that the most recent nvu upload was
a few weeks ago and did in fact drop the build dependency to which that bug

 nvu (1.0final-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * added mozilla-unused patch, which i hope will solve the RC bug (closes:
   * removed libgtk1.2-dev build dep as we don't need it (closes: #351502)
   * now this is the real 1.0 version (previous version uses the
     PR tarball) (closes: #341469)
   * added makefile.in.patch which solve a compile issue with libfreetype6

The only reason the bug wasn't closed is because the bug number was typoed
in the changelog; closing it with this message.
