Bug Description

The dbus-cpp package currently has a build-dependency on g++-4.9. This build-dependency is present because of the recommendations on about handling of C++11.

The C++11 ABI has now stabilized in gcc as of gcc 5; however, before we can switch to gcc 5, we first need to be able to do rebuild tests of the archive against this compiler.

To facilitate this, please drop the build-dependency on g++-4.9 from the package in wily. 4.9 will remain the default until all transition issues have been identified, so there is no risk of accidental ABI breakage here anymore.
