[Pkg-db-devel] Bug#560658: FTBFS: Can't locate Debian/Debhelper/Dh_Lib.pm

Package: db4.6

This bug also occurs on Ubuntu; the cause appears to be that db4.6 calls
dh_nativejava during the build, but the package providing dh_nativejava,
libgcj-common, doesn't depend on debhelper (since dh_nativejava is an
optional component of the package).

The attached patch should correct the build failure.  I'm not sure why the
failure hasn't manifested on the Debian buildds before now, but from the
build logs it looks like some other build-dependency used to pull debhelper
in as a dependency by chance and this is no longer the case.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
