Package: ofono-dev
Version: 1.21-1
Tags: patch
User: helmutg at debian.org
Usertags: rebootstrap
Control: affects -1 + src:modem-manager-gui

modem-manager-gui cannot satisfy its cross Build-Depends, because its
dependency on ofono-dev is not satisfiable. In general, Architecture:
all packages can never satisfy cross build dependencies unless marked
Multi-Arch: foreign. In this case, such a dependency is not quite
correct for two reasons:
 * ofono-dev depends on a libc and thus needs to transfer the
   architecture constraint. If it wants to keep the dependency, it must
   be turned Architecture: any. I argue that for actually using it,
   you'd also need a compiler, so it is probably a lot easier to just
   drop the dependency and assume that anyone who uses ofono-dev will
   have a working toolchain installed rather than adding gcc or like
   that to Depends.
 * ofono.pc is in /usr/lib/pkgconfig and a foreign pkg-config will not
   search that directory. Moving the file to /usr/share/pkgconfig will
Then we can mark it Multi-Arch: foreign. Please consider applying the
attached patch.
