No, it should be. This is documented in the bug archives. 
We keep the building against libgl1-mesa-glx-dev and thus

Hmm, I didn't know the added it back. I assumed that they were gonna
bump it after the conflicted with it in experimental.

the kdist bug by just removing the recommends seems silly.

Hmm, thought I had removed this. Maybe it was a legacy package.
