[Pkg-e-devel] Bug#757934: src:efl: should build-depend on autopoint

Package: src:efl
Severity: serious
Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)

efl requires autopoint.

autopoint is pulled in by newer versions of dh-autoreconf but not the
version available in Wheezy.

This bug can be fixed in one of three ways:

 a) Add build-dependency on recent dh-autoreconf, with fallback on

    Build-depend: dh-autoreconf, ..., dh-autoreconf (>= 8~) | autotools

 b) Add build-dependency on autotools:

    Build-depend: dh-autoreconf, ..., autotools

 c) Tighten build-dependency on dh-autoreconf to recent versions.

    Build-depend: dh-autoreconf (>= 8~)

Please do either a) or b) which keeps backporting easy (also backporting
outside of backports.debian.org).
