Hello Gianfranco and Chris.

I've made some checks today, and this is what I got:

* This package still FTBFS if built twice in a row.

* The patch by Chris adding the missing Build-Depends solves the issue.

* I can't reproduce the undesired side-effects quoted above with
  version 0.8.8-13 currently in testing and unstable. I guess the
  problem went away by using autoreconf.

Makes sense.

Please try the patch from Chris with the current version. It works for me.
