Ok. I will package the htmlparser from validator.nu. Hopefully this will
fix this issue too. It might take a couple of weeks though until the new
package enters the archive since it also has to be reviewed by our
ftp-team first.

I just had a look at


Apparently they happily download the build-dependencies in binary format
from hg.netbeans.org. This is something I can't do in Debian. I only go
through all this pain because the Debian package is really built from
scratch, self-contained, does not download anything from the web and it
uses only build-dependencies in Debian main which all come with full
source code.
