Package: libgnome2-wnck-perl
Version: 0.16-3
Severity: serious
Tags: stretch sid
X-Debbugs-Cc: libwnck-dev at packages.debian.org

This package fails to build on current sid/amd64.  It looks like
libwnck-dev recently dropped its dependency on libxres-dev, making
things like 'pkg-config --cflags libwnck-1.0' fail.

Cc'ing the libwnck maintainers. Was this intentional?

  Package xres was not found in the pkg-config search path.
  Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xres.pc'
  to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
