Subject: arduino-mk: missing dependency on screen
Package: arduino-mk
Version: 1.3.4-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Using "make monitor" tries to fire up screen and that failed since
screen wasn't installed for me (new system). arduino-mk should depend or
at least recommend on screen to hint to the user that he should install
something else.
