Dear Maintainer,

mensis fails to build from source with fontforge version 20161005 from
experimental. It fails in the configure step with following error

checking fontforge/basics.h usability... no
checking fontforge/basics.h presence... no
checking for fontforge/basics.h... no
You must install the include files for fontforge
before building mensis.
debian/rules:29: recipe for target 'override_dh_auto_configure' failed
make[1]: *** [override_dh_auto_configure] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/<<PKGBUILDDIR>>'
debian/rules:22: recipe for target 'build' failed
make: *** [build] Error 2
dpkg-buildpackage: error: debian/rules build gave error exit status 2

The full buildlog is available at ¹. New version of fontforge is already in
experimental. We plan to upload the newer version to unstable in about a week
time. If you need any further help please feel free to contact us. (Fonts team).
