Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

A user (nutznboltz) discovered that one of the build dependencies
for libvirt is not listed in its build-deps, though it is listed
as a depency of one of libvirt's build-deps.  If that package is
not installed, compilation fails with:

libvirt-0.9.8/./src/libvirt.c:22:20: fatal error: gcrypt.h: No such file or directory

See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libvirt/+bug/932889 for the
original Ubuntu bug report.

In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to achieve the following:

  * debian/control: add libgcrypt11-dev to build-depends (LP: #932889)

Thanks for considering the patch.
