[serious because breaks other package builds without a good reason]

Dear maintainer,

the 2.1.1-2 changelog reads:

   * Drop libgd2-{xpm,noxmp}-dev dummy packages

though there are still packages (build-)depending on them.
I see no bugs against those packages asking for changing such build-dep (I
chkecked only a handful of them), and as such now those packages can't be built

Please add at least a Provides: so that package can continue using such
transitive packages and open a bug against them asking for such change.

Following there is what the daily cruft report reports, you can find some more
with grep-dctrl since there are packages with such build-dep masked by an

* source package libgd2 version 2.1.1-2 no longer builds
