Source: libxml2
Version: 2.9.4+dfsg1-3.1
Severity: serious
Justification: FTBFS with impending change
User: debian-perl at lists.debian.org
Usertags: rename-deprecation

As announced last year[1] and as advised by deprecation messages,
rename(1) will be removed from the perl package after the stretch
release, and this is now imminent.

Your package FTBFS with perl from experimental as a result. Please
add a Build-Depends: rename to your package, and all will be well

make[2]: Leaving directory '/<<BUILDDIR>>/libxml2-2.9.4+dfsg1/builddir/main/python2.7-dbg'
prename -vf 's/(?<!_d)\.so$/_d.so/' debian/tmp-dbg/usr/lib/python2.7/*-packages/*.so
/bin/sh: 1: prename: not found
debian/rules:99: recipe for target 'doinstall-python2.7-dbg' failed

Let me know if you would prefer an NMU to get this trivial change made.
