I have no idea what causes that, unless we have a missing build
dependency somehow? libsword7? What else might it be? I just can't
duplicate the issue here (so far). If you can suggest things I can do
to duplicate this issue, that would be helpful.
As a simple test, I just rebuilt that bibletime package in Debian Lenny
with libsword-dev and libsword7 installed, (not in a pbuilder, see
below) by being fairly boring, doing:
dget -x http://computeroptions.net/sword/bibletime_2.0~alpha3-1.dsc
dpkg-source -x *.dsc
debuild -S -sa
and it "just works". I then repeated this in my sid VM, with the exact
same result -- it works there too, at least for me!
I cannot get pbuilder to create me a sid or experimental pbuilder at
all, which is rather frustrating! Apparently, sid is self-inconsistent
regarding some packages at the moment, and the "answer" is (I am told)
to wait for a few days and try again :-/
The error I am seeing (after a long delay while everything is downloaded
and installed!) is:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
aptitude: Depends: libapt-pkg-libc6.7-6-4.6 but it is not installable
Depends: libept0 (>= 0.5.22) but it is not going to be
E: Broken packages
-> Aborting with an error
If there is something I can do to work around this and create a usable
sid pbuilder, please let me know.
[Aside: This is the kind of thing that makes me want to retreat to the
safety and comfort of Ubuntu -- I had a Jaunty pbuilder months ago when
it was still alpha1 or even before that, and it built fine and "worked"
to the extent that Jaunty itself was "working" at that stage. I can
understand people uploading stuff to experimental that breaks something
this way... but to unstable? I suppose it really *is* "unstable"! ]
I hope to have some more time to chase this down Friday evening and
Saturday. Maybe someone will have fixed sid by then so pbuilder create
