Bug Description

Binary package hint: alpine

This bug was sent manually, but the text was written to a template, as I have several similar bugs to report today. Please see my recent bug reports for a list, or bug #391165 for the root cause.

Versions 2.00+dfsg-1~hardy1, 2.00+dfsg-2ubuntu2, and 2.00+dfsg-1 of alpine have a backslash at the end of the line(s) in the "Build-Dependencies" section of debian/control. There shouldn't be a backslash in the area(s) marked by ***asterisks***:

Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 5), libldap2-dev, libpam0g-dev, libncurses-dev, ***\***
 libssl-dev, autotools-dev, ca-certificates, automake, autoconf, libtool, libkrb5-dev, ***\***
 quilt, cdbs, aspell

This is currently allowed because of bug #391165. However, alpine will fail to build once that bug has been fixed. This bug can be fixed by removing all end-of-line backslashes.
