Bug Description

Every time I try to build a package in a chroot with bzr bd, I now get this:

Building using working tree
Building package in normal mode
Looking for a way to retrieve the upstream tarball
Using pristine-tar to reconstruct libvisual-plugins_0.4.0.dfsg.1.orig.tar.gz.
bzr: ERROR: quilt is not installed, please install it

The quilt package is not otherwise required in order to build packages (including v3 packages) from source; it's only because bzr bd now calls quilt that this error occurs.

Either bzr-builddeb needs to depend on quilt, or it needs to be more graceful about not finding it when it's not needed (I suspect it's not actually needed here).

bzr-builddeb (2.8.4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Add dependency on quilt. LP: #951207
  * Cope with missing tags when looking up upstream versions.
  * Skip quilt unapplying for trees that can not be copied (such as
    _PreviewTree). LP: #950419
  * Document the argument for --export-upstream. LP: #959065
