Package: pcmanfm
Version: 0.9.8-1
Severity: important
User: pkg-utopia-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: halectomy


HAL has been deprecated and declared dead upstream so we want to
get rid of it eventually in Debian [1].

pcmanfm has a build dependency on libhal-dev and libhal-storage-dev,
so it would ftbfs once hal is removed from the archive.
I can't find in the source why that build dependency is necessary.
Can that simply be dropped?
