Bug#898023: notmuch: Please disable gdb build-dependency on riscv64

Source: notmuch
Version: 0.26.2-1
Severity: normal
User: debian-riscv@lists.debian.org
Usertags: riscv64


notmuch depends on gdb, which is not available yet in Debian for the riscv64

After a bit of research, it's not clear to me the purpose of build-depending on
gdb.  (If you know from the top of your head and can explain briefly it would be
great, I am curious now :) ).

We're generally reluctant to ask to disable dependencies specifically for this
architecture, because we hope to get them available in a reasonable timeframe.

However, since this is also disables in fully supported arches for many years
like s390x, ppc64el or mips*, in this case is probably better to remove it for
riscv64 as well.

It would be great if you could include these changes and release a new version
for unstable soonish.

Thanks and cheers.
