Package: src:mkvtoolnix
Version: 2.7.0-1
Severity: serious

Since the upload of gcc-4.5 the package fails to build:

dh_auto_configure -- --enable-gui CC="ccache cc" CXX="ccache g++"

As a first measure, I'd suggest to not use nor build depend ccache on
the buildds. It's pointless for debian buildds anyway.
