Bug#930603: libdockapp-dev: pkg-config file Requires xext without dependency on libxext-dev

Package: libdockapp-dev
Version: 1:0.7.2-1
Severity: important

Requires: x11 xext xpm

Therefore anything build-depending on libdockapp-dev and using pkg-config
to locate the library will FTBFS unless it has a direct b-d on

I think the error is in the pkg-config file, not in the Debian package.
Since the headers of libdockapp-dev do not #include (and therefore expose)
headers from libxext-dev the pkg-config should have (at most)
Libs.private: -lext
instead of the requires.
