Bug#431698: gdm: (c)debconf dependency listed twice

Package: gdm
Version: 2.18.3-1
Severity: normal

debian/control contains
debconf (>= 0.5) | debconf-2.0,

as ${misc:Depends} automatically adds a dependency on (c)debconf, if
debconf if used, the dependency is listed twice in the resulting deb.
You should thus remove the 
debconf (>= 0.5) | debconf-2.0,
