Hello Jeremy,

thank you!

1. it does not build in a minimal chroot:

./configure: line 3839: syntax error near unexpected token `X11,'
./configure: line 3839: `PKG_CHECK_MODULES(X11, x11)'

Installing pkg-config gets one step further
checking for X11... yes
checking for dockapp... no
configure: error: Package requirements (dockapp) were not met:

Package 'xext', required by 'dockapp', not found

The latter is not necessarily a wmail bug (See
https://bugs.debian.org/930603). You can either wait for a
fix/explanation there or work around the issue temporarily by adding a
b-d on libxext-dev.

2. Lintian warns about the empty line at the end of the changelog
(file-contains-trailing-whitespace debian/changelog (line 81))

3. debian/patches/0001-Removed-configure-and-Makefile.ins.patch can be
dropped - It does not serve any purpose because these files are
regenerated by dh_autoreconf.
