pycurl ftbfs in focal (missing python-sphinx)

pycurl (Ubuntu)

Fix Committed

Bug Description

[SRU Justification]
This package is unbuildable due to unsatisfiable build-dependencies, as seen in a focal test rebuild:

Missing build dependencies: python-sphinx

This makes the package unsupportable in the event a security update needs to be applied.

[Test case]
1. let the package attempt to build in focal
2. check if it succeeds.

[Regression potential]
Because the missing build-dependency is python-sphinx, which is only used for building the package documentation, the risk of regression is confined to a misbuild of the documentation. Regardless, this package will be held in -proposed because the runtime impact of a FTBFS is non-existent.
