Bug Description

The current gtk+3.0 in -proposed breaks reverse dependencies on powerpc/ppc64el, such as https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/packagekit/0.8.17-4ubuntu5.

I reproduced this on a ppc64el machine, and reduced it a bit:

$ pkg-config --print-errors "gtk+-3.0"
Package mirclient was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `mirclient.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'mirclient', required by 'gdk-3.0', not found

Installing libmirclient-dev actually helps, so it seems this is a new but missing dependency of libgtk-3-dev? But that sounds a bit odd -- shouldn't that only be a Requires.private or so, and not exposed to GTK users?

Checking the versions/arch of libgtk-3-dev:

 - On amd64, both 3.16.4-2ubuntu1 and 3.16.5-1ubuntu1 have a dependency on libmirclient-dev
 - On ppc64el, neither version has a dependency on libmirclient-dev

Nevertheless, packagekit builds fine against 3.16.4-2ubuntu1 but fails on 3.16.5-1ubuntu1. So perhaps MIR support was only added in the latest version on powerpc/ppc64el, but forgot to add the new dependency?

The -dev package currently has

         libmirclient-dev [amd64 arm64 armhf i386],

while the build deps have

         libmirclient-dev (>= 0.13.3),

both should have the same arch list.

This bug was fixed in the package gtk+3.0 - 3.16.5-1ubuntu2

gtk+3.0 (3.16.5-1ubuntu2) wily; urgency=medium

  * debian/control.in:
    - the previous upload stopped limited the architectures where the mir
      backend is built, drop the restriction from the dev depends as well
