Hi!  I'm doing a shared library transition of libidn, and noticed a
strange dependency on libidn11-dev in the libclamav-dev package, and it
has been there since the beginning of (salsa git) times.  As far as I
can tell, nothing in clamav depends on libidn, so the dependency is
useless.  Can you confirm that?  If so, please drop the dependency.
