The dependencies for the 64bit version I presume to be auto-added by
the dh_shlibdeps program. Maybe this was uploaded manually and not auto-rebuilt?

With 7.0.3 there will be a dependency on Xss to help the boinc client spot the
movement of the mouse. This will then drag in the X libs for all platforms.
There is a conflict of interest here. We have bug reports for either side.

Since AMD and CUDA do both need X libraries, and those contributions
I presume to easily outweight those who might not want to run the BOINC
client because of the now added dependencies on X, I decided to go for it.
