Bug#855316: libboinc-app-dev: depends on old versions of libstdc++

Package: libboinc-app-dev
Version: 7.6.33+dfsg-5
Severity: serious
Control: block 851871 by -1


libboinc-app-dev has:

Depends: [...], libstdc++6-4.7-dev | libstdc++-4.8-dev | libstdc++-4.9-dev | libstdc++-5-dev

I see two problems with this:

First of all, I'm not sure you need to depend on libstdc++ at all,
given it is build-essential. Just like you don't depend on g++.

Seconf of all, even if you need to depend on it, then you should
update that for gcc-6 (and gcc-7's) libstdc++. Best of all would
be to also depend on 'libstdc++-dev' as an alternative, which
is a virtual package provided by the real libstdc++ (see libicu-dev).
