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.

This was fixed in git upstream a while ago [1], but there hasn't been a new release yet.  I'll work on that soon.
