Source: gtkmm3.0
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

I am using cowbuilder + pbuilder to build gtkmm3.0 from source and before
facing #959602, I got the following:

$ pdebuild --pbuilder cowbuilder -- --distribution bullseye --basepath
I: using cowbuilder as pbuilder
dpkg-checkbuilddeps: error: Unmet build dependencies: dh-sequence-gnome doxygen
libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev (>= 2.35.5) mm-common (>= 0.9.10) xvfb
W: Unmet build-dependency in source
dh clean

As this is not notified in #959602 and neither looking at reproducible builds
of Debian:

Is my system have something wrong?
dh-sequence-gnome is a virtual package supplied by gnome-pkg-tools

Finally in d/control, I just removed dh-sequence-gnome.

But also, main point of this report, I also replaced libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev by

The built was ok then.
