Bug#744086: libmate-desktop-dev: please fix dependency specifications

Package: libmate-desktop-dev
Version: 1.8.0+dfsg1-3
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 8.4
Control: affects -1 src:eom

As it stands, mate-desktop-2.0.pc specifies

  Requires: gtk+-2.0 libstartup-notification-1.0 dconf

but libmate-desktop-dev's only -dev dependency is on
libstartup-notification0-dev; this discrepancy makes eom FTBFS.

Judging by its headers' #include directives, I'd suggest specifying

  Requires: gdk-pixbuf-2.0 gtk+-2.0
  Requires.private: dconf libstartup-notification-1.0


  Depends: ${misc:Depends}, libmate-desktop-2-17 (= ${binary:Version}),
           libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev, libgtk2.0-dev

Could you please look into doing so?
