Bug Description

Binary package hint: gimp

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 2.6.3-1ubuntu1~intrepid1, 2.6.1-1ubuntu3, and 2.6.6-0ubuntu1, and 2.6.6-1ubuntu1 of gimp have a missing line-end comma in the "Build-Dependencies" section of debian/control. There should be a comma in the area marked by ***asterisks***:

Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 5.0.53), cdbs (>= 0.4.37), autotools-dev,
 patchutils, gettext, intltool, libx11-dev, libice-dev, libsm-dev,
 libxmu-dev, libxpm-dev, libxt-dev,
 libaa1-dev, libgtk2.0-dev (>= 2.10.13), libglib2.0-dev (>= 2.16.0),
 libpango1.0-dev (>= 1.12.2), libjpeg62-dev,
 libart-2.0-dev, libpng12-dev | libpng-dev,
 zlib1g-dev, libtiff4-dev, python-dev (>= 2.3.5), python-gtk2-dev (>= 2.10.4),
 python-support (>= 0.4), libexif-dev (>= 0.6.15), libmng-dev,
 librsvg2-dev (>= 2.7.2-2), libfontconfig1-dev (>= 2.2.0),
 libwmf-dev (>= 0.2.8-1.1), libfreetype6-dev (>= 2.2),
 libpoppler-glib-dev (>= 0.3.1)***
 ***libasound2-dev (>= 1.0.0) [!kfreebsd-i386 !kfreebsd-amd64 !hurd-i386],
 libhal-dev (>= 0.5.7), libdbus-glib-1-dev (>= 0.70),
 liblcms1-dev | liblcms-dev, libgegl-0.0-dev, libbabl-0.0-0-dev

I haven't tested the exact effects of this issue in gimp. It might be that these dependencies are unnecessary and can be removed, or it might be that some features are silently disabled (see bug #365770 for an example). If the dependencies should stay, the bug can be fixed by inserting a comma in the marked area.

I had a quick look, and it seems that gimp does use libhal (unfortunately). Just added the comma for now, thanks for spotting!
